In the night

A look at the sky

Reveals the lights

Of stars shining high,

The clouds so gloomy

Against a moon so bright

Under a tree

A traveler sleeps

While a curious owl

Stares unblinking


Some windows shut

Some buds open

Wild beasts roam

Last trains zoom


Streams sparkle with reflections

Tramps shiver with cold

Houses like dots in the distance

Nestle in a huge, dark bowl

…now that you’re here
