A COUNTRY NIGHT
As stars glisten against a black velvet sky,
A gentle breeze plays a wind chime melody,
Setting into motion a night of entertainment.
Cicadas sing in the old oak trees,
A Coyote howls on a nearby hill,
While bullfrogs contribute a nocturnal serenade.
Sounds of creation fill the cool night air,
A song that only nature can sing,
An orchestra of music on a country night.
Suddenly – the breeze stills,
A blanket of silence covers the night,
Calmness so quiet you can hear an ant crawl.
