Fireflies

From sunset bright
Through moonlit night
The fireflies
Of summer skies...

Delight, surprise,
And tease the eyes
With twinkling lights
In aimless flights…

As creatures slight
 Reveal their plight:
 Despite the night,
    To shine with might…

It’s quite a sight
That seems so right
When Christmas lights
July ignite
