It's not nightly shadows that induce fear and give chills,
but most of us are easily frightened by their eeriness,
and by constantly staring at them with dismayed zeal...
we may imagine anything that's not quite as real!
Let's not walk through a dark park with the slowest pace
and avoid staring at a ghostly moon following our steps,
if it enchants us with its brightness, we are in for frets;
any sounds from behind us could be raccoons that chase!
It's not darkness that creates the most frightening tales,
it's our imagination going behind the limits of known fear;
rest on a log and think of shadows as something so harmless;
ghosts come alive, if your scary mind allows them to appear!
