I find this poem to have a calming effect on the reader. I hope you enjoy it.
Sounds of the Night
A screeching sound cuts through the night,
An angry bird who lost his meal,
The jingling sound of an old chime,
Swayed side to side by the small midnight breeze.
In this quiet nightly world,
The sound you hear above all others,
The sound of silence and peace,
Where everything is at rest.
The scurrying of mice,
The lapping of the waves against the shore,
The children a snoozing deep asleep in their beds,
All the sounds that you hear as the night comes around.
Though the nights peace and quiet,
Many sounds can you hear,
The sounds of quiet lives,
Being lived in darkness.
