Just Crickets

Night rhythm
Just loud enough to reassure you
That good things are out there,
That it’s cool and pleasant and free.

No disasters or catastrophes tonight
Just crickets,
Chirping away busily,
No hidden message,
No terrible secret,
Just the quiet murmurings
Of couples slowly, hesitantly
Approaching.

They bear no news,
Ill or good,
They are not TV
They are not the stock market
They are not the loud-,
Ever-shouting,
Ever-present,
Information.

They bring peace and sleep,
And carry you off,
Nature’s lullaby,
They tell you it will be a sunny morning
And a bright new day
Full of hopes and smiles
And running around like a kid.

That’s what you really want to know,
Isn’t it?
