Down below the shining moon
Around the trees, a sacred gloom
Running with the midnight sky
Knowing the thing that makes you cry
Night is full with my essence
Eternal light betrays my presence
Soaring through my endless task
Shadows are my faithful mask


Answer

Darkness (the first letter of every sentence spells out "DARKNESS")
Hide

Great Teaser but very easy.
For me anyway.
I read the first 2 lines and decided to look at the 1st letters in each sentence.
And from there.....

Beautiful poetry. Another great riddle Grilledcheese

I gotta go with WildcardAl
I have never heard of acrosticness

Anyhow I guessed darkness 1st,
the moonlight shadows. Did not
see the letters going down to spell
it. The essence of the poen captured the mood, I got it from
that VERY NICELY DONE

Honey, it went right over my head. Zoom. After I saw the answer I wanted to hit myself. That was a great teaser. Thanks so much for posting. I love these things.

Very nice, clever. I studied it hard but couldn't solve it. Thanks, do it again.

For WildCardAl: I didn't notice the acrosticism either. Ha!

Nov 03, 2007

That was a great one! ...Made doubly great (for me) by the fact that I got it right! Great job!

Nov 03, 2007

Good one! Didn't get it--and I love acrostics!

Folks, please stop mis-using 'acronym'.
Examples of acronyms are AIDS, NATO, and SCUBA i.e. the initials of what it stands for form a pronounceable word.

Hope no-one is offended by this piece of instruction; I'm a teacher seven days a week, so it's hard to get away from that mindset!

Again, the riddle was lovely!

That was Awesome, I put that in my favorites....excellent job!!!

That's pretty cool! I don't know what acrost means, though, so I'll have to look it up.

THAT was REALLY good! Totally didn't think about that. Funny how some things are right there--- under our noses.

Nov 06, 2007

good one cheese... i got it rite away and noticed the acrostics... you have a way with words that cant be explained... keep 'em coming
breathesunshineAus*
Nov 07, 2007

I was so smug and thought I had it right off with "fog". And all the time the right answer was staring me right in the face!!!

Excelent. Writing Teasers is an art, and this one is very good art. My first guess was the clouds.
If you never get money for your teasers, you may want to write a poems books

Wow... a some people must have taken this from you... if you do a google search of it, there's some sites with this same riddle. I'm sorry that people stole this from you.

Too bad 'cause i wrote this one. So i would appreciate it if you stop posting the same bad comment on my teasers. thank you.

Actually, I was sticking up for you... I don't see a reason why people steal your teasers and put them on their own site.

Knowing the thing that makes you cry
Night is full with my essence


After that, I thought I KNEW it was "dreams"
And I guessed early

Why does darkness make you cry??? Nice poem though and I am a poet myself.

Nov 03, 2013

It's beautiful poetry, but not much of a riddle. Very obvious, even without the acrostic..
