MOTH

MOTH



Unsung butterfly of the night
Seen only in the murk
Eschewing the sunlight
Pale-skinned, huge-eyed, he will  lurk,


His bulb-drawn silent face- 
A morlock of the world of flies
Displayed in night-black case -
Against the cold glass lies.

    What an incredible descriptive poem. I especially enjoyed your unique reference to a moth as a morlock among the world of flies. Great piece of poetry here.
