Night in the Everglades (part 2 of 2)
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.
