The Night Sky Still

The night sky still.
The moon is bright.
The stars are watching.
Listen-
Do you hear the whisper of the night?
The owls talk-
"Who is coming?"


The night sky still.
The moon is bright.
The stars are watching.
Listen-
Do you hear the whisper of the night?
The wind whistles-
"What do they want?"

The night sky still.
The moon is bright.
The stars are watching.
Look-
Do you see the magic of the night?
The clouds swoop in
They have come.

The night sky still.
The moon is bright.
The stars are watching
Look-
Do you see the magic of the night?
The clouds are here,
they want the moon.

The night sky still.
The moon is bright.
The stars are watching.
Look-
Do you see the wonder of the night?
The stars begin to hide,
the clouds scare them

The night sky still.
The moon is bright.
The stars are hiding
Look-
Do you see the wonder of the night?
The night sky stirs
The clouds are lively.

The night sky wakens
The moon is bright
The stars are hiding
Look-
Do you see the story of the night?
The clouds reach out
They grab the moon.

The night sky wakens
The moon is dark
The stars are hiding
Listen-
Do you hear the sadness of the night?
The wolves howl,
the clouds have stolen their moon.

Not my best work, but I like it anyway. And yes, it is meant to be a slow quiet read
