While Shadows Creep Lifeless Everywhere (Cavatina) - Poem by Gert Strydom

(after Edward Thomas)

Invisible animals in the darkness
do outside go
as they sneak around without sound their eyes
do like fire glow
while shadows creep lifeless everywhere
as the wind blows
fear leaps like a big panther, far too little
is the world of sight, as I feel quite brittle.
