Dylan, Age 9
West Sand Lake Elementary
Inspired by Robert Frost’s “Fire Flies in the Garden.”
Here comes real friends to fill up the upper grass
And here in the trees, the birds are tweet-tweet-tweeting
And the crickets are chirp-chirp-chirping.
That though they never equal stars in the size of the moon
(They were never really stars, but birds)
Achieve at times of a very dark moom
Start of course and the fun of plying Capture the Flag
Outside, in the dark
Is like an adventure
Any moment coming eye to ye
With a creature
In its habitat.
