Poetry Friday - Shadows



Although this poem doesn't have a particular Spring feel to it (unlike the weather outside - finally - yay!), it is an original written by my 11-year-old daughter (known here as Pippi) and I loved it - so I'm sharing it.

I am What Lurks
by K.R.M.

I am what lurks
in the shadows
on a gloomy
night.

I take
pleasure in
scaring
others.

I am what lurks
under your bed
at night
"no monsters"
they say.
I'm invisible to them.

I am what lurks
in the dark
attics at
night.

I come and go
as I please.

I am what lurks
in old forgotten
places
at night.

I do as I wish.
I do as I want.
