Life is full of scary peaks and valleys
Like some frightening carnival ride.
Taking time away in chips and chunks
Moving along, setting you aside.
Scary things like lightning and sharks
Or some monsters under your bed
Steal your mind away from silly things
Like taxes, or what happens when you’re dead.
But when I listen to a windy night
I only hear my house bow and bend.
All I have to do is sit and listen
And not think of any kind of end.
