Night In The Everglades (Part 2 Of 2) - Poem by John Bliven Morin

At last a faint glimmer of light
begins to outline the live oaks
with their long gray beards,
the cypress knees and

the palmettos and sabals;
the egrets take to flight,
cranes wade through the swamp
seeking fish hidden below.

The nocturnals retire,
it is dawn; the rising sun
bakes away the mists of night
Across the vast 'glades.
