1. Read the poem given below  carefully  :


They stare at you,

These ugly phantoms of the night, And do not seem to care

 If you stare back at them

All day they perch half asleep,

In lonely  ruins, dark church towers, Not liking the sun.

Dozing and dreaming  with  stupid face, Of scurrying mice, fat beetles; baby birds, Swallowed 

greedily in cruel gulp.

At twilight they come out

Like floating paper glide along lanes, Noiselessly dipping over hedges

Or fanning  their  ghostly  way

Around  the houses, down the avenues

Ears and eyes set for the kill Then gorged with  fresh meat, They sag back home,

The moon's  eye watching  them, Hooting in the wind,

Waiting for the next raw victim. I do not like owls,

I shiver  when I hear them

Screeching  at the bottom of the garden, Invading the darkness,

Glad I am not a mouse, Small birds or beetle.
