10 of 12 given words:
approach lane lights pin spare 
release wonder split star gutter

Uneasy approach to a dark lane
Street lights only at strategic places
Just enough to side-step the gain
To pin hopes for a safe passage

Not to take unnecessary risks
Sieze the privilege of an upper hand
Spare oneself of unwarranted grief
Secure a  release in any event

One need not have to wonder
Just split easy to get unstuck
Stars above will help to ensure
Avoid the gutter it's tough luck

  3. I remember this - well expressed Hank! Fortunately, up here in North Norfolk, our country lanes still feel quite safe.

  9. Its better to take the long road rather than to become lost in the allure of the short. Excellent write, Hank!
