Symbols of Night


Symbols of
Night

Bats
Flying
Goblins
Gigglin g
Prancing
Out
Of
Hedges
Then
J umping
In
One
Leap
Out
Of sight.

The flowers were
Fading
Light and
Bending
Drying
Desiccated with
The waning day.


Shrouds crying
Ghosts wailing
Shadows flitting
Lamenting
And a distant zooming sound
Rhythmical
In to that gruesome nocturnal scenery


Dawn will come
And bring a little light
To the nocturnal horrors
From the night.
