Fireflies' Prelude - plus animal poetry contest

Fireflies’ Prelude
By Stacy Savage (Indiana)

The sun surrenders
To the sky
As the moon awaits
With his winking eye

To begin his routine
In the rosy wake
So the sun may take
Her needed break.

Fireflies come
And bid adieu
In their evening performance,
Right on cue,

Above the meadows
And prairie grass—
Pulsating flashes
As they pass

And dance in the air
With lanterns bright,
And the stars welcome
The magic of night.
