Lullaby Tonight

Have you ever been on the pathway to sleep
And all you could see was circles
spiralling,
twisting and falling like mild paints on the wall?

Strange as it seems…
Weird songs of night come alive:
Sweet melodies of the frog choir across the road
where the rain water log…
And the trembling voices of the cricket clan
play a wonderful tune, which accustomed to the night
brought relief and some soothe

Night throws a party of black cloak
over the boring earth
From my window, yawns filter in
noises of other activities,
But nothing to interrupt a well-deserved sleep

So good night and sleep tight
May angels keep you safe
