Vast stretches of darkness
blanket the silent world of
trees, valleys, and shadows.
the dangers of the night.

Come forth and conquer,
Oh army of light!
Bring your lamps and torches to the battle.
Reveal the depths,
the distant corners,
the secret hiding places.
Give us knowledge
to cast out fear.

(Hour 20, Poetry Marathon 2020. Prompt: write a poem involving light of any kind, from the sun, to a lamp to a candle.)
