Night Creatures

A/N The inspiration came from wise man who said, "Why are we night creatures who stay up till the quiet hours with... the clacking of computer keys?"


On a night like this,
With the mist curling up
And the sky falling down,
The moon glistens bright;
On a night like this,
The Night Owls stir
With round, shining eyes
And a question- "Who-who?"
Clickety-clack go their claws
On the branches
Clickety-clack, Clickety-clack on the branches...
The Night Owls in their reverie
Eyes perceving all
Through the fog...

On a night like this
With the hum of the mechanics,
And an arteficial light
As Clickety-clack goes their fingers
On the keyboard
Clickety-clack, Clickety-clack on the keyboard...,
This is the only company
Of the weary sleep-deprived
Night Owls.

  2. This is awesome! I will forever picture myself as an owl on a branch when I'm typing into the early hours.
