The goose bark at midnight


Explanation:
Hello !
I guess you want to have the English version of the sentence.

The goose bark at midnight

In Norwegian I would say:
Gåsa bjeffer ved midnatt
(that´s also what I have translated, the preposition "på" ( = on) is here not the right one to use)

I wish you good luck !

agree  Trond Ruud: zoologically right, but the verbatim translation is "bark", rather than "honk" :)
