And though we have our lives, we know
What sinister threat lies there.

I think that, to understand this poem you need to know the setting, the background, why it was written. I do not, but it seems to be a group of soldiers returning to their camp in the darkness. The line Death could drop from the dark could refer to a bomb or missile, or even a cannonball.

Serpent hides on her kisses.....May be a story of the medieval times memory through histories. Great writing.
