The Shadow Man

by Hannah Kantner

In the forest, he waits and hides.
To play a game of hide and find.
With the glow of hunger in his eyes.
Only he knows who dies.
Near the forest is a valley where five children play so happy.
But one of them- a little girl was curious and she went into the forest.
An hour has passed.
The others noticed at last.
They called her name, but got no reply.
Then suddenly, they heard a scream that made birds take off into the sky.
It came from the forest.
when they got there they stared in horror.
The girl's death was not late for she was only eight.
