The times of Silence

I like the 3am silence the best

The house and street are sleeping

No cars to break the noise

No “wandering homes” from the train


After that I like the midnight silence

This is good for marking

An odd car

A rumbling train

But the house is asleep

And the dog at my feet


My third favourite silence

Is the silence at dawn

The birds sing their songs

The kids are asleep

But life is ever slowly

Coming to the new day
