A Still Night by Seán Maguire
Silence along the road, as the sun
went down, waiting for stars to light,
flight paths for swooping owls.
The night crawled towards, dawn.
A sly fox spied a field mouse,
in mid yawn.
A new day came. Nature’s nightshift
clocked off in time, for the return trip,
to beat the morning rush hour.
