Night Sounds

It's 1:40a.m.

I am not in bed.

I am listening to the sounds of the train yard west of the Arkansas River and south of downtown Tulsa.

BANG, as cars smash together and hook up.

TOOT, as whistles blow.

Sometime early in the morning, while I am laying in bed, I will hear church bells.

The bells will be primarily from Tulsa's Boston Avenue Methodist, but also from other churches downtown.

What do you hear, from your home, late at night and early in the morning?

  1. I hear the train sometimes too. It's funny that we live right off a Lewis and 31st and don't hear cars but I hear the train so far away. Used to listen to it when I was a child in BA, brings back memories.
