Silence of the Night

The Night was black
Someone shut off the moon
it was dim and dull.
There was a mysterious
chill in the air.

I stepped out of bed
the cool floor sent a chill
up my leg and through my body.

I heard the whistle of the wind
and the crunching of the leaves,
the shadow of the branches
looked like the wrinkled
arm of an old man.

The creaking of stairs
sounded louder in the silence,
of this night.
