I left my window cracked open when I went to bed so this is what I ended up writing

Nightjars

Nights are not quiet

Nights are not quiet There's plenty of sounds to hear

Nights are not quiet There's plenty of sounds to hear If you can listen

The cicadas roar

The cicadas roar Humming boldly from treetops

The cicadas roar Humming boldly from treetops As dusk approaches

Tree frogs seeking mates

Tree frogs seeking mates Call out into the darkness

Tree frogs seeking mates Call out into the darkness Waiting for response

Crickets chirp somewhere

Crickets chirp somewhere But don't look around for them

Crickets chirp somewhere But don't look around for them They're ventriloquists

The nightjar's omen

The nightjar's omen Is carried off through the night

The nightjar's omen Is carried off through the night Soft and lonesome notes

Coyotes chatter

Coyotes chatter Or they bark or scream or howl

Coyotes chatter Or they bark or scream or howl A few sound like tons

Nights are never still

Nights are never still But if noise keeps you awake

Nights are never still But if noise keeps you awake Just shut your window
