Lulled Into a Dream

Under the silvery light of the moon,
I heard the cry of a distant loon.
Closer by I detected the bark,
Of a lone coyote out in the dark.
The wild bobcat out on the prowl,
Stirred up the screeching of a midnight owl.
While crickets sang a happy refrain,
I heard the whistle of a nearby train.
Competing with the urgent siren whine,
Was the soft humming of the telephone lines.
And the trickling of a sleepy stream, 
Lulled me fast into a friendly dream.

    This is a really lovely poem, and your night-time sounds are so different to my own in England. You brought to life your part of the world in this interesting poem Peggy and I loved it.

    I live in Toronto and a city full of noises. I love especially to fall asleep to the sounds of night noise. Thank you for your comments.
