Musicians of the Night( a poem of inspiration)

moon beams dance on the waters edge...
moon beams dance on the waters edge...


All across the wide bayou, golden reflections of the bright moon's light,

The stars in the dark sky, twinkle as they fly, swirling about in the night.

The shadows of tall trees, cast intriguing designs, all in mottled shapes,

Strange sounds fill the void, as moonbeams paint the broad landscapes.

beauty to abound over each greening hedge...
beauty to abound over each greening hedge...


A song is to be heard there, a most beautiful serenade, in a fine refrain,

Night birds singing, crickets, frogs all ringing, their jubilance to maintain.

The intrigue and uniqueness found there, is beyond our ears to compare,

The cool breezes, in scents of flowers, rare, waft on winds, extraordinaire.

scents of flowers, extraordinaire...delight
scents of flowers, extraordinaire...delight


Here, where the loon, white cranes, bull frogs, and whippoorwill, all to sing,

Heralding the curtain of the night, until the morning's light, its opera to bring.

Natural symphony of greatest harmony, treasured instruments, of rarest tone,

Carrying melodies, wafting in the air, creating a magic spell, this time, so fair.


this opera performed until morning's first light...
this opera performed until morning's first light...


Beethoven, Bach, their musical prowess, challenged by such orchestral divinity,

The simple, the common sounds of the swamps, more precious in their acuity.

The classical notes transform the nighttime, into rarest moments, their tonality,

The brilliance of the musicians, most amazing giftedness, each's commonality

The commonality of the musicians in the swamp...so resounds...
The commonality of the musicians in the swamp...so resounds...
musician of delight...make their rounds...
musician of delight...make their rounds...
Where gifted composers of music...all abounds...
Where gifted composers of music...all abounds...
camouflaged in tones of browns...
camouflaged in tones of browns...
enchanted swamp of beautiful sounds...
enchanted swamp of beautiful sounds...

You take beautiful photos and write pretty words as always. I often listen to classical music. Especially when I need to calm my nerves. I've also gone outside just at dusk to do this as well. When you hear the whip-poor-wills, and the crickets sing. The colors across the sky even give off a feeling of serenity. :)
