A Nightmare's Bluff


At twilight's time,
It's time for bed,
It's time to sleep,
So rest your head,

In your bed's warmth,
You shall sleep,
But in your slumber,
You shall weep,

A good dream turns,
A nightmare comes,
A nightmare burns,
A trick is done,

Heart is a-thump,
Enveloped in fear,
Drenched in sweat,
Torture is near,

Swiftly awake,
Calming nerves,
Wipe the sweat,
Repose is served,

Finding relief,
A nightmare aloof,
Only to find,
It's about to come true.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
