Eeka, Neeka

Walter de la Mare

Eeka, Neeka, Leeka, Lee –
Here is a lock without a key;
bring a lantern, bring a candle,
here is a door without a handle;
shine, shine, you old thief moon,
here is a door without a room;
not a whisper, moth or mouse,
key-lock-door-room: where is the house?
say nothing, creep away,
and live to knock another day!
