Nature is alive in darkness
The glory of nature – night
Let the creatures of the night rise,
As the sun surrenders the day.
Let the bats take to those dark skies,
Seeking out insects for their prey.
Let the owls stretch out their wide wings,
As they silently take to flight.
Let us sleep as the nightingale sings,
Whose sweet song echos through the night.
Let the hedgehog uncurl once more,
Seeking out small insects to eat.
Let our gardens be there to explore,
Finding food by the garden seat.
Let the fox hunt without a sound,
It’s cubs playing in the forest.
Let the night creatures roam around,
Until dawn, when they go to rest.
