Focus on Texas: Night Life

After sundown, new features on Earth and above come to light

No, it isn’t hot in Texas; and the cool night dews are falling,
And the katydids are chirping in the grass beside the pool;
And from out the moonlit distances the mockingbirds are calling,
And I know the days are hazy and the nights perfumed and cool.
