MOTH AND BULB

The moth hovers
Nearer and nearer
The warm light bulb

 

The closer it gets
The hotter the bulb
The further it retreats
The colder the bulb’s heat

 

The moth finds cause
In its life

 

To keep the bulb burning bright

 

The light bulb glows
As a light bulb should
Like a butterfly that has never
Seen its colors
So the light bulb glows

 

And learns that moths
Love its heat
They thrive on it

 

And so it glows
Burns hotter and hotter
Like a light bulb should

 

The moth is enchanted
By the power it has
Over this intriguing light bulb

 

Close is never close enough

 

One night
Light bulb wonders why
Moth suddenly just left

 

One minute moth is all over bulb
The next
Moth flies down down below

 

Bulb waits
Moth never comes back

 

Bulb thinks
Oh well
There will be many more moths

 

And so it glows on
A light must never go out

 

It must burn
For the next moths to come
