As evenin’ creeps ever more near,
it grows all the more stark:
the crushing grip of my fear
of the deeper dark.

Then, shivering, I wait and hark,
praying that I live to hear
the call of the morning lark.

For I can feel the sear,
the burning, midnight mark,
of the hungry, hungry leer
of the deeper dark.
