Night The peaceful, dark sky is speckled with stars,
along with the moon, bright and bold,
making long twisted shadows out of the trees below.
A fox family prowls on crunchy autumn leaves,
hunting for their dinner.
The wise owl choir perfects its nightly chorus.
Lights flicker off in houses, signaling bedtime.
Prayers are said to the heavens above.
Children everywhere drift off into their dreams.
The night is still and quiet,
until the birds begin to chatter,
and the sun peeks above the horizon.
Dawn replaces the night.
