Darkness Fled – Rhyme



Rhyme of the Ancient Conflict


Let there be Light, He said

And the Darkness fled

But who is this stealing in

Sneaking around , back again


Light has overcome

Dark will not run

Light speaks again

Dark is chagrined


Be it only right

Not able to overcome,

For then try to smite

And plunder His sum


Darkness judges life

Encircles the Light

Proclaims His demise

Will not be mere surmise


The timber of the tree

Bears a shadow of life

And can it be three

The nails of stricken strife


The skies turned

A caliginous gloom

Darkening to spurn

Even vestige a moon


Darkness dances his jig

With a laugh of evil glee

At last he was winning big

Light hung limp upon the tree


Death by his evil decree

Carried Light to the grave

Darkness at last mighty

Nothing would Light save


Light entombed one day

Darkness still of caution

Too soon to claim decay

Stone is sealed from illusion


Light entombed day two

Death his grip held fast

Darkness detects naught askew

Nothing he can’t outlast


Early of the tomb day three

Darkness hearkens a report

Deaths message incites fury

Light escaped, extinction cut short


Sealed stone is carried away

Open door streaming sunlight

Death has lost its very first prey

Darkness more than his dolorous fight


Light is vitalized, He’s alive

 Death and Darkness defeated

Heaven’s gate is opened wide

The Thief is gravely depleted



And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:3

“The Light shines in the darkness and darkness has not overcome it.”  John 1:5
