I was taking a walk, trying hard to unwind
but was suddenly startled by a swoosh! from behind
This sound was soon followed by an "eek!" overhead
but before I could see what it was, it had fled.
I didn't feel relaxed as I yelled "argh!" out loud
and everyone heard me, I didn't feel so proud
I scare very easily, it's somewhat of a niggle,
it caused quite a few folk around me to giggle
"Ugh!" I said, I don't know why I'm so prickly
Lub-dub! Lub-dub! My heart still beating so quickly
I continued my walk, feeling shaken and stirred
and I'm still not sure what it was I might have heard!

What did I hear?
