Night in the Woods

The sun sinks gently in the sky

Back to their nests the birds all fly

And tuck their heads beneath their wings

As cricket choirs sweetly sing

The sky becomes a darker blue

And distant owls softly coo

The trees begin to disappear

Except those that are very near

Unseen twigs begin to crack...

And then the sky goes black

 

There is no light

The moon's not quite

Bright 

Enough

To tame the night

Shadows quiver out of sight

They grow in might

The mind takes flight

The dark, it has an appetite

Out of the world it takes a bite

 

Until sunrise restores the world

With a glow ever so slight
