Late night

Dark outside

Not all the neighbours asleep,

Lights on up the road

One by one they switch off.

No cars go past

All is hushed. Darkest night is quiet.

The darkness grows

Then slowly light washes in

So slowly the snails have time to return to the hedge. Silent they crawl back.

They’ve been out all night.
