a poem about a boy living at the edge of the forest and the sounds he hears as he tries to go to sleep.

scary night sounds

 

 

he hears the night woods

soft sounds as well as scary

 

different from day woods

 

he lies in his cold bed

in cold room

hears frozen trees

grinding against each other

in the cold night wind

a hard unpleasant sound

 

hears distant sounds

far away in the hills

is it the sound of a wolf

or a coyote seeking a mate

 

owl screeches in an old tree

is it wise

why are they known as wise

when they just sit and turn

their heads almost totally around

 

wonders if he could twist

his head almost 360 degrees

would he be wise

what if he could fly

what if he ate mice

 

neighbors dogs start to bark

howling into the darkness

do they know something he does not

finally there is only a whimper

 

he drifts off to the sounds of the wild

wondering what morning will bring
