The Black Mansion
The black mansion stood on the shoreline
Held its head high
Shining like a diamond
With pride, its summit touched the sky
The branches of the trees surrounding it
Gave it a creepy look
Although scared of its appearance
The five siblings stood at the mansion’s nook.
Somehow, they gathered the courage
To open the shiny black gate
Whatever was going to happen next?
It all depended on their fate.
Once inside the mansion
With relief, they gave out a sigh
But it didn’t last long
For they heard a girl’s cry!
Their bodies tensed
Their throats dry,
“Whatever shall we do?”
Asked each of them, with a look of wry.
Another shriek followed
Next came a laugh, so malicious
The youngest one was on the urge of crying
While the others became more anxious!
Slowly they proceeded
And climbed up the wooden staircase
A mystical sound filled the room
Chilling winds blew all over the place.
The sound grew louder
As they drew closer to the upper floor
When they reached upstairs,
They saw a wooden door.
Hard against the door,
They pressed their ears
The sound continued
For what looked like years!
Eventually, it came to a halt.
Replaced by a women’s voice
Bewildered, they all wondered
Why this sudden obstruction of noise?
They kicked open the door,
And what they saw left them tongue-tied
The television sat comfortably on the desk
With relief, together they all sighed.
