1.Read the given poem carefully :
The Vampire Jack Prelutsky
The night is still and sombre,
and in the murky gloom arisen from his slumber,
the vampire leaves his tomb.
His eyes are pools of fire, his skin is icy white,
and blood his own desire this woe begotten night.
Then through the silent city, he makes his silent way, prepared to take no pity upon his hapless prey.
An open window beckons, he grins a hungry grin,
and pausing not one second he swiftly climbs within.
And there, beneath her covers, his victim lies in sleep,
with fangs agleam, he hovers and with those fangs, bites deep
The vampire drinks till sated, he fills his every pore,
and then, his thirst abated, licks clean the dripping gore,
With powers now replenished, his thirst no longer burns.
His thirst this night is finished, so to his tomb he turns,
and there awhile in silence he'll rest beneath the mud
until, with thoughts of violence,
he wakes and utters......blood!
