That last stanza is the icing on the cake. Nicely done.

This is a beautifully written poem filled with creative imagery. I also like the way the last stanza is tied with ribbons of God's love.

I like your lead lines for each of the stanzas. Your descriptions and imagery that followed complimented each lead line. Incredibly well done.

This is a rich and evocative description of the night, with its beauties and its "beasts"!

My favorite stanza was the following:

"In the shadows of the night
things are not always what they seem,
fear like a fog hovers on the
edge of imagination,
shadows taunt with surreal forms,
tap, tap, tapping with ominous footsteps,
only to be laughed away
in the light of day."

Nice job! :)

I love the progression of this poem--in the early stanzas, "night" is very different from what it is toward the end...excellent craftsmanship.
