Favorite Quote:
Great business must be wrought ere noon
Upon the corner of the moon
There hangs a vap'rous drop profound
I'll catch it ere it come to ground
And that distilled by magic sleights
Shall raise such artificial sprites
As by the strength of their illusion
Shall draw him on to his confusion
He shall spurn fate, scorn death, and bear
His hopes 'bove wisdom, grace, and fear
And you all know security
Is mortals' chiefest enemy

When the sun is gone and day is done,
the fun has only just begun.
With the day retreats the light,
and soon the demons all take flight.
Past my window they beat their wings,
and oh what sorrowful songs they sing.
The sweet melodies fill my mind,
and soon their stories begin to unwind.
Tales unfold of the broken heart,
but before it's done the dancing starts.
Round and round they circle the moon,
and soon they begin to enter my room.
In and out they fly at will,
with a great and unmatched skill.
And all through the night I lay and listen,
all the while the moonlight glistens.
But all good things must come to an end,
and soon the light begins to bend.
Beautiful dark gives way to light,
and so ends this glorious night.
I stare and sigh at the rising sun,
as it banishes my fun.
And then a single bat flies by,
one single demon in the sky. He hums his tune loud and clear,
as if to tell me do not fear.
For when sun is gone and day is done,
the fun will have only just begun.

The author's comments:
I wrote this a really long time ago when some bats flew into my house. Well, I wrote it after I got them out.
