My love for nature

And when the sun is gone, I love the moon that shines so bright,
I love the sounds of crickets and other creatures of the night.

It smells of sweet perfume,
And the scent of clean clothes.

The Queen of the Night

Precious wonder under the calm moonlight
You are the gracious Queen of the Night
