It's Music to My Ears

It's music to my ears
when night falls quietly enveloping twilight
and the sun conceals itself from view
from my body rising in dawn's light
to the fall at days end into darkness
where I rest 

My mind unwinds from the clanging of men sweating
with sore feet and aching backs
My ears still ring with the moans of work
I invite the serenity of crickets
between creaks from my rocking chair

I sit on the porch of days ending
to rest from turmoils of life's continuous cycle
of today and tomorrows
as I leave time as a sentry
to guard my peaceful moment... to rest
Perhaps to sleep and dream
