Nature's Lullaby - Poem by Monica Jones

I sit beneath a shady tree
and listen to the nature sounds that call to me.
Cicadas sing their humming song
as a hoot and harmonizes along.

The symphony displays virtuoso tones
Lulling to a quiet pianissimo in their drone.
Crescendoing back to loud again
each creature singing solo in this refrain.

Butterflies waft upon the air
Conductors in flight out there.
Flapping their wings like batons
Encouraging this cacaphon to go on.

The evening sky paints the scene
As the trees stand tall with their heads of green
Whispering the hush of wind's delight
before all nature quiets for the night.
