Darkest of nights

The darkness sweeps across the land

It covers everything like a sheet

Not a star is visible

For even they were darkened

Every light that was shining

Is now as black as the expanse of space

The darkest of nights has arrived

And it swallows all in its path

The night is cold and brisk

the darkness seems unsettling

Everything is as silent as death

Everything is empty

Even the owl hoot has been swallowed by the darkness

Why is this darkness like this

Making everything seem frozen

There are no answers to my questions

This night is as mysterious as i

This darkness will coat the land

Till the morning light shall shine
