Day & Night: A Collection of Nature Poetry
by Janis I Monroe
There's nothing like the serenity of stepping out your door and onto the cool grass of your back yard. The sky is an array of colors, a vibrant blue fading into shades of pink and orange as the sun slowly sets. The crickets and frogs begin their serenade of chirps and croaks, awakening to the cool, crisp night air. Let nature capture and enfold you.
