.3. The Moth Ball

Mrs Moth wanted a party
She’d ask all her moth friends to call
The biggest and best they had been to
Non greater than this grand moth ball

They’d dance round the flickering candles
In sconces that hung from the wall
With plenty to eat in the wardrobes
Plus wool coats on hooks in the hall

Each moth got a smart invitation
They arrived from the small to the tall
From the plain to the really bright coloured
And a great night was had by them all

While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
