SECURITY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The noonday smiles to hear
Last Line: As fathomless as gloom.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Night; Noon; Bedtime

The noonday smiles to hear
The oft-repeated tale
Of shadows lurking near
Her sunbeams to assail;
Nor heeds the placid night
A prophecy of doom
To drown her stars in light
As fathomless as gloom.
