A Little Night Music Poem by Joyce Horovitz


It's twilight time and the night creatures are bidding farewell to the day.
The birds softly chirp as they're rocked to sleep on branches a breeze makes sway.
The crickets and katydids compete with the frogs in a musical marathon.
And the bull frogs add their bass guitars, trying to
strum along.
While this band plays the sky becomes a dance floor for the stars.
And the Big Dipper winks a tango for Jupiter and Mars.
Somewhere a fox pretends he's a coyote, howling at the moon,
And I'm transported to another world this beautiful night in June.
Unfortunately, I must lever this scene and wander off to bed
Still listening to this night music playing in my head.
And the crack for dawn is a sound unheard.
Except by the stirring of the early birds!
