  • 3. Sure On This Shining Night Sure on this shining night
 Of star-made shadows round
 Kindness must watch for me

 Hearts all whole Sure on this shining night

  • 6. “Now he seeks to become nobody for a while, to disappear into the woods so that the person he really is might find him.” 
 (Plotkin, 2003, p. 244)
  • 7. Acquainted with the Night I have been one acquainted with the night.
 I have walked out in rain -- and back in rain.
 I have outwalked the furthest city light.
 
 I have looked down the saddest city lane.
 I have passed by the watchman on his beat
 And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.
 
 I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
 When far away an interrupted cry
 Came over houses from another street,
 
 But not to call me back or say good-bye;
 And further still at an unearthly height,
 A luminary clock against the sky
 
 Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
 I have been one acquainted with the night. Robert Frost
  • 8. Darkness by Blackmore’s Night Once upon the dark autumn night I was so very far from sleep I longed to walk beneath the stars Into the wood so dark and deep ! Neither myth nor fairy tale Could keep me from the path to the maze But eyes upon me I could feel Hidden in the shadows watching always ! Something in the darkness pulled me deeper Something in the madness eased my mind Was I awake or was I dreaming Cut the strings that bind me to mankind ! Once while I was sitting in my room One cold and silver winter's day I could hear another worldly call Try as I might I couldn't turn away Something in the darkness pulled me deeper Something in the madness eased my mind Was I awake or was I dreaming Cut the strings that bind me to mankind ! Somewhere in between the moss and the stone The wind and the wood became my home I laid myself down upon the green When the ivy overgrew I could never leave ! Something in the darkness pulled me deeper Something in the madness eased my mind Was I awake or was I dreaming Cut the strings that bind me to mankind ! Something in the darkness pulled me deeper Something in the madness eased my mind Was I awake or was I dreaming Cut the strings that bind me to mankind
