Darkness

by Dan A. Cardoza

Frees shadows from sight

asks monsters to play, under your bed

floats a moon in the pond

gives your sunflower some rest

temps burglars to burgle

keeps lights from the dead

invites owls to dine

comforts the blind

tells tides which way to go

makes all those stars shine

tucks birds in at night

calls bats from your shed

turns a wick to flame

charms my lover to bed.
