The night hours whispered with mysterious sound
My returning friend the owl started hooting around
The darkness was enlivened with melodious song
The crickets were soothing as they followed along.
Clouds covered the moonlight but it filtered through
The nocturnal creatures scampered with so much to do.
The darkness was present but stopped nothing at all
The sliders and the creepers continued their crawl.
Suddenly, the sounding stopped sounding its sound
And the awakening sunlight was beginning its round
The creatures who were once busy took to their flight
While we were waking up they were readying for night
