Fireflies - Poem by Aditya Pratap

I wandered around in a lonely night
And everywhere just darkness lies
I saw a torch of shimmering light
From a flock of shining fireflies
Around the trees along the breeze
Meeting to solve, who knows what mysteries

Shinning were they, with a golden glaze
And never had I seen this sight, not once
The brilliance of which makes a poet amaze
mesmerizing me with that radiance
Tiny are they, so small in size
lights up the woods, a million fireflies

Continuous in flight, so largely bright
And miles from site but I could see
Though not Christmas, feels about right
Enjoyed the night with their company
And each one of you gets the winning prize
So proud of you, you dancing fireflies

Up in the heavens the starts that shine
And the moon so bright with jealousy sighs
The tiny creatures when fall inline
Beauty of the moon, now no one buys
Loud and clear, It so implies
Stars of the land, you fireflies

Behold them together dancing in joyous mood
And Being alone I need someone
Thinking why am I in such solitude
Wandering why was I born as a human

And being in slumber I close my eye
A dreamy night just passing by
Stood there watching and I
Wish I was a firefly
Wish I was a firefly
