This poem depicts the feelings one experiences in the dark of night. It portrays night time as a time filled with the unknown and the strange. The sense of fear is clearly motivated by the sounds of night creatures and the eerie feeling of darkness. There is mystery and danger in the cover of darkness at night. The nature of the unknown and the unexplained is highly depicted at night. The writer feels that night time is not to be taken lightly as almost anything can happen. This poem is outstanding because everyone has experience night time. Evil and strange things happen at night mostly hence unforgettable. The activities of night at times leave a person longing for daylight when they can see things clearly (Kumin 2008).
