Marshland Dreams

In the night the marsh cricket cries, Ringing through the starless still A song of aurora skies. A pale gray moon, listening, sighs, No wind rippling the watermill In the night the marsh cricket cries. Shearing the dark a lost bird flies, The melody shivers in the chill A song of aurora skies. Hours before forgotten sunrise, Ants dare venture from their hill In the night the marsh cricket cries. Beneath the marsh water millions of eyes, Shameless creatures drink in their fill A song of aurora skies. There are no fears, there are no lies They cannot understand this thrill In the night the marsh cricket cries A song of aurora skies.
