A poem about the creatures in the edge of darkness

The Edge of Darkness

Slumber awakens us right about midnight 

Slumber awakens us right about midnight  Blurry eyed faces and tear stained cheeks

Slumber awakens us right about midnight Blurry eyed faces and tear stained cheeks The cold winds howling in the darkness 

Slumber awakens us right about midnight  
Blurry eyed faces and tear stained cheeks The cold winds howling in the darkness  Sleeping alone is not for the meek 

Who there goes in the edge of darkness?

Who there goes in the edge of darkness? Even crickets hide from the shadows 

Who there goes in the edge of darkness? Even crickets hide from the shadows  The moon’s beams lighting the edges

Who there goes in the edge of darkness? Even crickets hide from the shadows  The moon’s beams lighting the edges Leaves scatter about as the freight grows

Who there stumbles about in hunger?

Who there stumbles about in hunger? Raccoons climbing the rafters 

Who there stumbles about in hunger Raccoons climbing the rafters  The possums crawling out from shelter

Who there stumbles about in hunger Raccoons climbing the rafters  The possums crawling out from shelter It is food all night creatures are after

Even skunks come out to feed in the winds

Even skunks come out to feed in the winds No one cares about silence in the night

Even skunks come out to feed in the winds No one cares about silence in the night Staying away from the beams of the moon

Even skunks come out to feed in the winds No one cares about silence in the night Staying away from the beams of the moon And the inhabitants that turn on the lights  

The stars twinkle while watching the view

The stars twinkle while watching the view The cats outside don’t seem to care 

The stars twinkle while watching the view The cats outside don’t seem to care  The dogs may bark if only they knew

The stars twinkle while watching the view The cats outside don’t seem to care  The dogs may bark if only they knew That the food outside they do share   

So the lights go on from teary eyes

So many the lights go on from teary eyes And the wildlife scatter and hide

So many the lights go on from teary eyes And the wildlife scatter and hide Remember never leave a door open outside

So many the lights go on from teary eyes And the wildlife scatter and hide Remember never leave a door open outside Or they may just come inside
