Night Lights


Night Lights


Night puts on its thinking hat,

the moon and stars and planets too.

It dims the light but leaves its night

light on for us to enjoy and witness.


There is a dog that barks at noise.

There is a cat burglar who is not

too fond of cats. He peeks through

windows to see if the coast is clear.


Those who make money through

thievery really should get an honest

job. Crime pays until it does not.

Night watches everything we do.


There are rare times we are treated

to a total eclipse. There are rumors

that UFOs prefer to come out at

night. I have yet to see one for real.
