Fireflies

A spark in the darkness
A light
In the night

A glow in the black
Dancing
Prancing

It weaves and spins
It dips
And tips

It's joined by others
Playing
And swaying

They light up the dark
All of them aglow
They put on a show

A girl and her dad walk by
Unawares
With awe she stares

She smiles with delight
Filled with glee
"It's so pretty!"

But then a question comes to mind
Her brow does knit
"Papa, what is it?"

Her dad looks down with a gentle smile
As he replies
"My dear, they're fireflies!"
