When Is Night?



When is night?
That darkened realm
Of tranquil thoughts
Where peace abounds

Calm and pure
Mid starry skies
As wisdom speaks
Dispelling lies

Moonlit lakes
Of placid bliss
Glassy water
Nature’s kiss

When is night?
I think I know
A cricket’s chirp
The firefly’s glow

The dancing wind
Among the trees
God’s greatest gift
Are all of these

When is night?
The setting sun
Just after dusk
When day is done

When is night?
Tomorrow’s dream
The peaceful sleep
Under starlight’s gleam

The rising tide
And ocean wave
That cleanses all
With power to save

When is night?
When all is right
Of all that’s best
Of all that’s bright
This is night
