The narrator has gone out to a garden in the middle of the night. But the garden, under the light of the moon, doesn’t seem like a usual garden. Everything seems a little weird and baleful – as if they were cursed by the moon. And when he continues to walk, things get even more strange. This garden has no end – it goes on and on. The narrator is confused. Will he ever find his way back from this beautiful yet terrifying place?
