tree frogs sedate me
cicadas do too
night sounds surround me
can’t help that it’s true

each evening at bedtime
i turn off the light
and climb into bed
to make with the night

the summer is ending
they’ll soon go away
no night sounds to soothe me
i wish they would stay.

  1. Oh I just love this! I love your rhyming poetry you are so good at it. And this is so soothing to read but melancholy too. I know what you mean about nature’s soothing sounds, they are very personal I think 🙂

    • Thank you I hate the winter when it’s like DEAD still and quiet outside. It spooks me! 🙂 Appreciate you reading and hope you’re well and thanks for the kind words.

  2. Yes, I share you love of this time, although I’ve never seen a cicada (except in an Eagles’ song, of course). And winter, man, what is it for?
