Short children’s poems

Sounds of night

The twilight echoes the sounds of night

calling the birds to rest

Flowers envelop the leaves which

surround the nest

Filled with harbours of warmth

built for bees to sleep

Warming the colours of the blooms that creep …….

into the ivy, holding the

leaves so tightly bound

whilst insects prepare the cocoons for night

Listening to the sound

of wind and rain and thunder and

bats in the dark

Creatures stalking, immersing their

annoyance in the park.

Noises, smells, vapours arising

from the houses alive

Creatures in cars and buses

scurrying to survive………

The call of night.

Barbara Louise Gillman
