A coyote's howl shatters night's silence.

Dead silence ringing in my ears

Alone outside in the dark of night

A coyote's howl from nowhere appears

My mind not filled with any fright

Then a call from an owl I hear

Awaiting arrival of morning's light

Nothing in the dark this old man fears

Droplet from an icicle taking flight

Falling to the ground where it smears

Dancing creek sounds bring such delight

Song resonates on the breeze then disappears

Filled with joy at the sounds of night

Once again silence rings in my ears

I love the beauty and darkness of night
