One and only friend sometimes by my side.  
Each and ev’ry day's dark end sends him off to hide.  
Inky, moonless black banishes his swift shape.  
He ought to guard my back, to protect my nape.  
I check for his form, often glancing behind.  
There he stands, though transformed: his height double mine.  
Again reassured, soothed by his ghostly shade,  
Off I go, undeterred; into dusk we fade.
