Night Songs

Haloed moon amid a starlit sky -
ascends above eve’s shadowy lands
With forging night comes chorused songs;
streaming through leafy timber stands

 

Chirps beneath shaded harbor rise;
in echoed unison the chatters swell
Tempo’s sauntered haunting tune,
erupting where nightly creatures dwell

 

On trickled waves - mirrored heaven gleams;
bright cratered orb crosses water and sky
Reflections touch crystalline fathom’s shores;
from shimmered shallows - lily's heirs reply

 

Sound of rhythmic music fills the air;
wailed warbled chirps rise and fall
Cattails sway to the steady drone;
water adds trickling beat to the call

 

Harmony scored along sloping banks,
lending voice to the tremolo choir
Orchestra plays throughout the night,
break of morn bids the players retire

 

Across the lake, shimmering curtains drawn;
stage takes bow - to resume before long
Haloed moon amid the starlit sky,
slowly descends to an ending song
