The Quest Of A Firefly One Summer Evening


The trees are calm this very happy night,
no wind to strain, no leaves are shivering…

Darkness shrouds every object with a slight,
Yet a movement amidst the quivering;

A firefly dances over the treetops—
little speck of a tap over the trees,

Moving the peaceful leaves with little hops…
Such firefly is not lonely like the seas;

The night air brought about a special slob,
hopping along the stillness of nature

to chase the little one like a freshly dub;
but whose light began to be in demure

The scent of love seeks those who are blinded,
and not all fireflies like to be chided.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
