The Rest of Nature Is Asleep

The willow tree is weeping,
The rain is sprinkling,
The sky is darkening,
The stars are dimly shining,
The moon's eye is half-closed.
The birds are hushing,
The crickets aren't chirping,
The bees aren't buzzing.
The wind is merely whisp'ring.

If the rest of nature is asleep today,
Maybe I'll just enjoy the quiet, too...
