midnight (plural midnights)

    • Alfred Noyes, The Highwayman:
      "She twisted her hands behind her;
      but all the knots held good!
      She writhed her hands till her fingers were wet with sweat or blood!
      They stretched and strained in the darkness,
      and the hours crawled by like years,
      Till, now, on the stroke of midnight,
      Cold, on the stroke of midnight,
      The tip of one finger touched it! The trigger at least was hers!
  2. The middle of the night: the moment of time, which is equidistant between sunset and sunrise.
