One summer’s night, on the way home
Tired and sleepy our thoughts did roam
It was purely by chance
We got to witness a Firefly Dance
The field was all filled with the twinkling light
Of a thousand lightning bugs in flight
The meadow was aglow
With this fairy-tale show
We could not stop gazing
At this panorama so amazing
So on the following night,
We returned to view the same sight.
To visit this scene of magic
Who would believe it would be tragic.
The field was mowed and plowed under
Destroying that pageant of wonder
But I’m glad we had one chance
To see fireflies dance!
