Summers’ night sounds

Finally, tonight, it was cool enough to linger outdoors,

Breathing in the rain-soaked scent of grass, dirt, mint,

And the alley’s pavement, and listening as the church bell

Tolled 11 and then was silenced for the night, to be replaced

By a serenade of crickets, playing for the full, silver moon.
