Ode to the Night

Night befalls the little town

Bringing colours of inky dark

And horror unfound

The power of the night

Brings a child's cry

A quiver and shiver of fright

The light of the stars

And gleam of the moon

Reveal only ugly scars

Of the creepies and crawlies

Whose breaths are candy sweet

But from whom the child flees

Ode to the night

And the spirit of Hecate

As the shadows take their wicked flight
