Child’s Play

Evening shadows cast spells upon hearts of children
Everyday places become the unknown
Where once they walked with confidence
Shadows play out the dance of foreboding

Night sounds echo through the still evening air
The ghosts of lives past whisper to them

Imagination runs amok as young minds race with the night
Seeking out the mystery of darkness
Searching for the key to the dark of doom
Chasing fireflies through the damp evening nights

Moonlight shines upon the nights events
As children once again portray themselves
