Twilight constanza

 Twilight comes with the crescent moon
 As street lights flicker in the dusk
 The night's approach is rather brusk

 Stars will begin to twinkle soon
 And  the sound of a distant train
Makes  a noisy  yet sad refrain

 A roll of thunder rattles spoons
 Lightening rips across  the sky
 The sound of rain is heard nearby

 As barn  owls hoot and crickets croon
 Bedtime stories are being told
 As children listen brave and bold

 The night lights up as fireflies swoon
 While  nature sings her lullaby
Sweet slumber calls and dreams reply
                                ~

  Twilight comes with the crescent moon
  Stars will begin to twinkle soon
  A roll of thunder  rattles spoons
  As barn  owls hoot  and crickets croon
 The night lights up as fireflies swoon

    Joseph, Congratulations on your placement in Andrea’s “Can you Constanza? Contest.” There were so many really amazing entries we had a very difficult time deciding. We had to go by who followed the form best, and whose poem was most creative. I spent 4 and half hours going over the poems and Andrea, a lot longer. Thank you so much for your wonderful entry Mahalo, Connie I loved this and the way you ended it.

    This is better than good. Andrea will have a hard time with her winners, I've seen nothing but well crafted pieces as this one! I'm waiting to see what happens; will be very interesting. Good luck poet! Immaculate ink.
