Hide the light from the cold
shadow that perishes
in the slumbering
of night as it moves sluggishly
like a sloth through heavy bramble.
The shadow is seeking,
seeking its own kind
among the living souls now sleeping
peacefully in their warm beds. Innocent
they appear; vigilant
they are not. Watch it closely!
Now it strikes in the pervading
gloom before day break. The quiet
deceives even the wisest.
In the shadow, evil awaits
the one lucky strike it needs
to win; but the light of the sun
is stronger. Wield that strength now,
or all will fall!
