Silence of the Night

The Painter to the Moon by Marc Chagall (1917)

Silence of the night
Heartbeat of refrigerator
Hurried breath of air conditioner
Humming of tropical ceiling fan
Ocean wave song of highway lane
Sigh somewhere around the town
Obscure snore rumble next door
Tick tock of sea shell wall clock
Lub dub beat of my heart
Funny how silence of the night
also has a voice
