Fear Of Darkness - Poem by Barry Middleton

before the sun departs
the air turns to gold

atavistic fear warns
darkness will descend

hungry monsters stir
joining the nightly hunt

evil hides in shadows
to trigger us to flight

for prudence knows
to shelter safe

to wait for silver dawn
protection of the sun

fear almost vanquished
as daylight demons wake
