Clouds ablaze as another day is put to sleep
The lid is closing on the earth
Darkness falls over the treetops
And silence fills the night
Boat gently rocking in its moor
Dragonfly zips past on its stealthy hunt
Clouds move quickly with the wind
A heron is silhouetted against the fading sun
Crickets sing their nighttime songs
Everyone is ready for their part in the darkest show
So when the curtain calls
And night time falls
They take the stage
And know exactly the roles
They are to play
