Firefly Gumball

Fireflies wing on a starlight dream
Unwrapping darkness' chemise
Pirouetting amber to gleam
Fireflies wing on a starlight dream
The Ursa swathed in aurum stream
Waking the fire, stirring the moon
Aureus of a glowing rune.
Tracing color in night's darkness
Flaring the space between the trees
Constellations light up the starkness
Tracing color in night's darkness
Braille that makes up the eyes brightness
Like nymphs on a dappled trapeze
Tracing color in night's darkness
A sky glazed with a velvet breeze....
