Firefly

"As twilight falls across the glen Pinpoints of light rise again Flashing beacons in the night More begin to rise a beautiful sight A symphony of light commences they start to dance Lifted by silken wings and winds of chance An ocean of yellow stars twinkling for all to see Drifting free in perfect harmony Children's laughter now fills the night Dashing here and there catching all in sight Decanters filled with living lights Lightening in a jar candles of delight Finally the spectacle is over and they rise into the night Release the ones you have children let them continue their flight They open their containers and out as one they fly Into the night like starbursts in the sky The glen is quiet the lights are gone Don't worry children I say it won't be long Rise again they will with their lights of song" Jon J
