Firefly!



Light, fireflies small lamps.
Shine, they yet on dim of mind
Spraying around high spirits.

Fluttering, flickering in
Dark, spread fireflies diamond sparks.
In glee I look on.

Up and down in sky
High, fly a thousand fireflies.
Silver stones hurl in air.

Man impertinent,
Masters dull means ,life is but
A short-lived firefly.

  6. Yes, I'm afraid it's true: Comparatively speaking, our lives last about as long as the life of a firefly. **sigh**
