The Vampire Bat
By Evelyn Scott
 
From “Tropical Life”

WHAT was it that came out of the night?
What was it that went away in the night?
The little brown hen is huddled in the fence corner,
Eyes already glazing.
How should she know what came out of the night,        5
Or what was taken away in the night?
A shadow passed across the moon;
The wind rustled in the mango trees.
And now, in the morning,
The little brown hen is huddled in the fence corner,        10
Eyes already glazing;
Because a shadow passed across the moon,
And the wind rustled in the mango trees.
