Heavy as a ton, just waiting to attack the daylight sun.
It could be on the other side of earth, or lingering behind ashes in an unlit hearth.
When it's around many say not a word, yet every little sound is amplified and heard.
It lurks in shadows and behind unseen doors. It creeps up and grows, more and more.
It spreads quickly across the atmosphere,
yet silent, not a thing to hear.
Seemingly endless,
If not for the moon and stars, it would be friendless.
It takes over the sky, leaving little ones in fear.
Yet soon, the sun will come near.
