Night shadows darken my wall of dreams Shading my thoughts, or so it seems TO me, as misty sleep wakens to goblins and elves Lurking in corners, and on the shelves Where teddy sits and dolly too Their shapes all lumpy, as they grew Grotesque in my mind, started with themes That only come in night time dreams.
But here is mummy, and daddy as well To startle the dark which quickly fell From my mind now clear, Of the shadows that cause night time fear.
