EVENING LULLABY

Summer sounds drift softly,
Through the window in the night;
Soft breeze moves the curtain,
In a slow dance with moonlight.

A whisper of the night bird,
Fills the twilight air;
The fragrance of the summer bloom,
Lingers softly, sweetly there.

Shining from a navy sky,
Is a languid harvest moon;
Its moonbeams shine upon the bed,
And dance across the room.

On the sultry summer breeze,
Floats the whistle of a train;
As distant thunder rumbles,
From a promised summer rain.

There on the dark horizon,
Lightning flashes 'cross the sky;
Gentle raindrops kiss the rooftop,
In an evening lullaby.
