Light Banishes the Darkness


Darkness falls across the land

Creeping crawling with a plan

Rips open in time and space

Evil enters unto this place.


Things not seen since time began

Resembling neither beast nor man

Swarming on the lonely house

Attempting the light to douse.


Inside the simple cabin sits,

A spinster, wrapped in bits

Of cloth and fabric, leaves and herbs

Looking like trash upon the curbs


Raising her hands unto the sky

Words of power from her fly

Candle light burns and glows

As power from her flows and flows.


The light takes on a form of its own

Billowing from the fragile crone

Exploding from the cabins cracks

Twisting and powerful it acts!


Into the evil forms it slams

Like water pouring from the dams

Banishing them back into the dark

Holding till the morning lark.


Daylight breaks across the sky

The crone lets out a rattled sigh

Another night she held at bay

The evil that hides, from the day.

Morning tngolfplayer.

Nicely put together, and when you think about it, it's amazing what forms evil can take.
