Romance of the Fireflies

When in joyous luminescence they dance, gyrating to the katydid’s cry
They flit and float, darting about happily in the night
Under the gazillions of stars smiling and twinkling merrily in the sky

The moonbeams illuminate the tale of their love that is willful, yet shy
Showing off their sinuous movements, their yearning, their plight
When in joyous luminescence they dance, gyrating to the katydid’s cry

Transfixed I watch this romance of the fireflies, unwilling to intrude or pry
As they cavort and frolic in the beauteous meadow whilst in flight
Under the gazillions of stars smiling and twinkling merrily in the sky

Their ardour rouses denizens to orchestrate their union, it does aye
They serenade them with night melodies, making them blush bright
When in joyous luminescence they dance, gyrating to the katydid’s cry

The entire lea buzzes with music, as they sway together languid yet spry
Enamoured in their fervour they take passion to a new height
Under the gazillions of stars smiling and twinkling merrily in the sky

The night resonates, it sighs as the stars above wink and say, “O my.”
I watch this pastoral romance, willing away the moon and its light
When in joyous luminescence they dance, gyrating to the katydid’s cry
Under the gazillions of stars smiling and twinkling merrily in the sky
