Night’s Spirit

It breathes the shade of night’s realm
Beneath the cloak that shrouds the stars
Its lifeless heart in silence
The fear felt in the dark

It keeps an obscure wisdom
And whispered words are given
In a chilling song sung so low
An essence of lingering sorrow

The eeriness of the unknown
The life within dark winds that blow
The stage it gives our glowing moon
Directs the clouds to curtain and move

Its whispers grow quiet with dawn
And says its farewell when the stars are gone
Then drifts with the moon to the other side
This friend of dark, the spirit of night
