No More Fireflies?

fireflies-in-japan

I did not see a firefly

Till I was 25

And when I first did spy them

They brought me more to life

With their tiny little golden lights

Lighting up my summer nights.

For 30 summers I loved the glittering they’d bring

To the grass and trees

Every single spring.

But now I live so far away

From where they fly and play.

I miss them so

I did not know

I’d grieve them quite this way.
