The Night - Poem by Billy Loving

Darkness of the night
Silence, the delight
Twinkling of a star
A distance so far
Gray of the sky
As a bat flies by
Back and forth it goes
Not knowing which direction it chose
It darts here and there
As I stand and stare
I see the moon so round
It's shining all around
I see the craters and ridges
As the sunlight, it bridges
In the shadows, I see
A cat as it stares at me
On its way it goes
No danger, it knows
Dim lights shining on the ground
Nothing there to confound
Swaying of the tree
All as calm as can be
Coolness all around
Lack of any sound
Into my abode I return
Nothing there to concern
Another peaceful night
The feeling, that all is alright
