“WHEN I READ A BOOK, I PUT IN ALL THE IMAGINATION I CAN , SO THAT IT IS ALMOST LIKE WRITING THE BOOK AS WELL AS READING IT – OR RATHER, IT IS LIKE LIVING IT. IT MAKES READING SO MUCH MORE EXCITING, BUT I DON’T SUPPOSE MANY PEOPLE TRY TO DO IT. ”

(Dodie Smith)

Shadows

Believe you’re safe in your retreat,
Until the wind with prying fingers
Leaves a fear that lingers.

Step out into the lustrous sun
With every ghostly battle won,
Safe in each familiar sight:
Terror fades in broad daylight.

So banish dark and fear away
And with false light turn night to day.
Shadows inside us always fall;
An inner twilight shrouds us all.
