A Little Night Music

by Nancy Clark
If there be
drumming rain,
insisting crickets
in the grass,
or locusts
humbuzzing
like a myriad tiny bows
on strings,
then lulled
am I
to rest.

But this night
brings a straining song
on northwind borne,
a fretful drone
of crying tires,
of grinding
highway whine,
constant
as an ocean's roar.
It plays me
such a struggling
lullaby.
