Background Fifty Flashing Fireflies

Fifty flashing fireflies

    Flickering in the night.

Fifty dancing *lightening bugs,

    Throwing out their light.

 

Dancing groups of fireflies -

    Such wonder and delight –

Waltzing through the blackness

    So delicate, so bright.

 

Each of these tiny beetle bugs

   Was sparkling in the dark,

Turning blackness into light

    And each a shimmering spark.

 

 

* Lightening bugs: another name for fireflies.
