Another Shade Of Reality


Hold tight the night
Embrace the dark

Lit only by Luna's
Lambent spark

Keep tight the lids
So not to see

A ray of light
Not meant to be

For in the dark
Dreams can be

Another shade of
Reality

And a world as bright
Without the light

Of velvet black
Dark things to see

Enjoy the world
Of ebon deep

Dreams of wonder
In your sleep

Push away the day
That world so bright

Embrace the dark
Hold tight the night

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
