Night And Me - Poem by Arnee Akpan

What a night
With no light
Gazing at the stars
Dreaming of mars
Creatures creeping
In this silent night
I listen to the rhymes from the crickets, frogs and other creatures
singing with their different voices and parts
I listen to the music of earth with pleasure
What a night

I shiver all through
Praying to God
To see me through
By 5'O'clock
The creatures begin to end their songs
Now I can sleep
Although boring
But quiet and inspiring
The moon is gone
Leaving me with my old lamp
And now as the sun rises, the city heart begins to beat
And the cold breeze of the early dark hours, romances my skin
oh! oh! oh!
what a night.
