Darkness is black.
It hids so many things.

Darkness is like a blanket
That lays across the land every night
And that takes away,
But doesn't give,

Darkness is like a large shadow
That blocks the light
And makes sure that wonders
Stay hidden
For awhile.

Darkness could also be death,
But that I cannot know.
Darkness could allow the plants,
In secret,
To grow and sprout.
Who knows?
Maybe darkness even hides magic.

This was very well written and I really like how you didnt make darkness just seem like a cruel cold world...You made it seem like it had wonder and mystery and I respect that....Keep it up your very good....

Very well written poem. You described very well one way of looking at darkness, with a quality I have failed to create when writing on the same subject. Darkness is so complicated, for it is the unknown.
