Poets of the Earth

by Nancy A. Kirby




I canít get

to sleep tonight.

Awake; I ponder

late night life.

Outside, nature

is peace and still,

A serenity,

and yet a thrill.

The fireflies

put on a display

for me.

In amongst,

the forest of trees.

They light at will;

and it seems,

They are doing it

to show me.

Above stars twinkle

in the dark mist sky,

And there

in the leaves;

are fireflies.

Never ending

glimmers of Light

From heaven to earth

and in my life.
