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
