Theme: Nature

A Summer Night

The lake appears deep serene
Settled for the night
Gently blows the wind across
The failing evening light
The dancing waters by the shore
Sing a lullaby
Join in chorus rustling leaves
Under the summer sky
On the shore around the groves
Frolic the fireflies
From within the mango trees
A baby squirrel cries
The wizened owl sits patiently
Eying its slithering prey
Among the leaves on the ground
That gathered by the day
The old bat silently glides above
Feasting in the night
On moths and insects it detects
Across its dizzy flight
The sky slowly lights up
With twinkling little stars
Casting magic like fairy wands
To hide the nights' scars
Behold with me unrivaled beauty
In blackish tones of grace
A silent summer night unseen
Held in divine embrace
