Catching Shadows By Nightwatch


By nightwatch, shadows hide
until sleep is cast upon the eyes,
and senses of those waiting
for shadows to present themselves.

And they wait, night after night,
suspicious minds lost from dream
who suffer the naked strangeness
from earths un-godly substances.

Morning arrives, and all the eyes
who spent their night watching-
will realize that shadows of night
never guise to the cynical eye.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
