(inspired while watching a couple of bats chasing each other around the houses one night)

Fluttering across the dusky sky,
Some silhouettes go dancing by.
Around and around each other they chase,
Unknown beings, but so full of grace.

About the rooftops the shadows fly,
Stooping low, then soaring high.
Fascinated I watch them before going to bed,
The tiny creatures swoop above my head.

I watch them flutter out of sight,
As they vanish into the dark of the night.
Over the treetops, houses and flats,
Away they go to roost, a couple of bats.
