The night was chilled by winters' breath|
As snow lay on the ground.
A blus'tring wind whipped through the air...
It was the only sound.
The darkroom light was seen by one
Who studied every pose.
He could not let the truth be known
By what the photo showed.
Then when at last he found 'the one'
His hands began to shake.
He never meant for things to end
In death...for heavens' sake!
Discarding negatives in the fire
Was how he spent the night.
His one mistake was now erased...
Then he turned out the light.
