The Hour of The Wolf
“The hour of the wolf,
they called it.
That strangely disquieting hour
between three and four in the morning,
the empty nothing of the night.
An apt description for that simple,
single span when even the most stolid,
unimaginative of men
look back across their shoulders and shudder.”
“The Hour Of The Wolf” is the hour
between night and dawn…
It is the hour when most people die,
when sleep is deepest,
when nightmares are most real.
It is the hour when the sleepless are
haunted by their deepest fear,
when ghosts and demons … are most powerful.
“The Hour Of The Wolf” is also
the hour when most children are born.
The Hour of the Wolf is that hour …
around 3 a.m. when you can’t sleep
because you’re worried about one thing
… or another…
