    Default Night Poem


    Night Poem
    by Margaret Atwood

    There is nothing to be afraid of,
    it is only the wind
    changing to the east, it is only
    your father the thunder
    your mother the rain

    In this country of water
    with its beige moon damp as a mushroom,
    its drowned stumps and long birds
    that swim, where the moss grows
    on all sides of the trees
    and your shadow is not your shadow
    but your reflection,

    your true parents disappear
    when the curtain covers your door.
    We are the others,
    the ones from under the lake
    who stand silently beside your bed
    with our heads of darkness.
    We have come to cover you
    with red wool,
    with our tears and distant whispers.

    You rock in the rain's arms,
    the chilly ark of your sleep,
    while we wait, your night
    father and mother,
    with our cold hands and dead flashlight,
    knowing we are only
    the wavering shadows thrown
    by one candle, in this echo
    you will hear twenty years later.
