The world is going quiet

As night is drawing near
Two ducks upon the wing
An owl whose who is clear
The moon sits high
Above the shadowed trees
The doves fly low
Among the fading leaves 
On and on
Below it all
On and on
As darkness comes to call
On and on
Plays the song 
On and on 
All night long…
