Comfort in the Darkness

by w.j.debi

Darkness Contest Winner 
I find the darkness glorious
For stars shine just at night
Pure moonbeams bathe a few of us
In their romantic light

'Tis bliss to hear nocturnal sounds
A bullfrog's croak is sweet
Sly hooting owls will scan the grounds
While crickets strum the beat

And as I wander through the trees
Their shadows gently sway
I feel a cloak of twilight ease
The burdens of the day

I love the night, embrace its charms
Sweet peace now reigns supreme
The darkness wraps me in its arms
Where I can safely dream
