Night Time Serenade

i love night time...laying in bed at night just listening
listening to the coal trains lumbering by slowly
or to a night bird...yes...they exist...but only in the hills
where you dont hear airplanes landing at the airport
or traffics chaotic noises...people milling around

just the silence with an occasional train...bird...barge
its a quiet place...where one can contemplate the day
think about the things you want to do...write...read
or maybe nothing at all...the quiet life...cant beat that
glad my son brought me here...my little corner of the world

its not always quiet...once in a while you see an ambulance
then you know one of your neighbors is having it rough
like the night my next door neighbors husband died
he was a nice man and so full of stories about this town
told of the history this town has seen...from the beginning

my house...on the property of what was once a trading post
or the underground refuge for slaves smuggled to freedom
the many mining tunnels weaving underneath our feet
yes...im living with history now and enjoying what i find
all the little trinkets my dog can dig up in our yard

there is still so much to learn...each day a new adventure
stories here that you will never find in the history books
full of life all their own...waiting for me to find them
to be friends with...passing them on...creating new ones
dreaming about the past...becoming one with our history
