The sounds of the whippoorwill,
Are muffled in the night,
They eat and nest in the day,
But in the evenings take flight…

The cries of the coyote,
Are so loud and very clear,
They startle and surprise us,
And may bring a deafening ear…

But the sounds of silence,
Are the ones we most fear,
Since they are unknown,
And strange and not clear…

Next time you are trying to sleep,
Listen to these "sounds of silence,"
Because in the darkness of the night,
These sounds make no appearance… ©2003
