Night Watch - Part III

“There is a way that nature speaks to those who listen,

That the sky, the land, the water, and the animals speak;

But most of the time we are simply not patient enough,

Nor quiet enough, to pay attention to their stories.”

 

Linda Hogan

 

I had just found Hobo

Now fast asleep in my car

When I heard a magical tune

The night wind had carried it far

 

As one who loves everything in nature

I had the urge to investigate this night tune

It was one I had not heard in quite some time

It intrigued me as much as the yodel of the loon

 

And now, I found myself heading towards this melody

It was emanating from a small lake deep inside the wood

As I soon crouched on its shoreline, listening very intently

I eventually spotted him, his night song so joyous and good

 

He now looked over at me, and didn’t seem very startled

Then he waded into the water, and intently peered around

Suddenly, he poked his feathered head beneath the surface

And came up with a small fish, pleased with what he’d found

 

I had truly enjoyed listening to, and then observing, this night fisher

I realized he was a Night Heron, and his song hadn’t needed any words

When I returned to my car, I knew that I had been truly blessed this night

I’d seen a meteor shower, rescued a canine, and met a most fascinating bird

 

There is a way that nature speaks to those who listen,

That the sky, the land, the water, and the animals speak;

But most of the time we are simply not patient enough,

Nor quiet enough, to pay attention to their many stories.
