The Altar Steps Vol-75

Frightened By Some Alarm Of Sleep That Was Forgotten In The Moment Of
Waking, A Little Boy Threw Back The Bedclothes And With Quick Heart And
Breath Sat Listening To The Torrents Of Darkness That Went Rolling By.
He Dared Not Open His Mouth To Scream Lest He Should Be Suffocated; He
Dared Not Put Out His Arm To Search For The Bell-Rope Lest He Should Be
Seized; He Dared Not Hide Beneath The Blankets Lest He Should Be Kept
There; He Could Do Nothing Except Sit Up Trembling In A Vain Effort To
Orientate Himself. Had The Room Really Turned Upside Down? On An Impulse
Of Terror He Jumped Back From The Engorging Night And Bumped His
Forehead On One Of The Brass Knobs Of The Bedstead. With Horror He
Apprehended That What He Had So Often Feared Had Finally Come To Pass.
