Still of the night by Suzanne Allen

Setting sun in the west

Golden clouds on fire

The day is put to rest

*

*

Street lights aglow

Traffic going home

Time begins to slow

*

*

Evening begins its routine

Nature sounds in the distance

Everything becoming serene

*

*

Nightlife comes alive

Birds chirping, bugs buzzing

People cycling, walking by

*

*

Darkness drifts in

Sleepiness, winding down

Earth becomes quiet again

*

*

Sound of trains lonesome wail

Drifting off to dreamland

Nighttime prevails

*

*

Tick, tick, of the clock

Dreamers dream

Insomniacs pace and walk

*

*

In the silent of the night

The day drifts away

Tomorrow moves with the sunrise
