Fear in The Moonlight

Fear in The Moonlight

written by: Eileen Clark



The night is very dark with a slight summer breeze,
A shimmer of moon peeking through the branches of trees.
I hear another’s footsteps in the distance from behind,
Hopefully the owner is a person that’s very kind.

As I continue to walk faster, a pounding in my heart,
The moon gets brighter as the clouds start to part.
I turn around as I hear the sound at a quicker pace,
Gleefully I laugh as the moon lights up my brother’s face.
