Tale of the Night

Look at the moonlit sky with the stars suspended above,
we feel our bodies drift away like the flight of a dove.
But we see the night with evil and despair,
we treat it with dread and even fear.
We fill it with tales of horror made up of our lies,
and teach our children to cringe and cover thier eyes.
But the night is for lovers and to watch the stars above,
to hear the songs of crickets or for the peace that we love.
So when the day is turning gray and night begins to fall,
hold this time to your heart and listen to the nights call.

    I like the message in this poem. I think you might have one typo, though. Should "tails" be "tales"? Thanks. Gary

    I think the transition to evening is so special, and you've captured much of it with these words.Like its dawn counterpart, so many things happen in rapid succession that it makes the heart race. Better than all the languid hours that are strung out in between. I'll look for you out there.
