Early one morning this summer, being outdoors in the yet still, quiet, darkness, I spied a lightning bug flitting around near the grass blade tops and it brought back memories.
SHINE FOR ME

In the darkness of the night
He's searching here and searching there,
Off in the distance, under the tree;
Atop a fern, or near the ground,
He hopes to see a flare.
He's waiting and hoping;
Expecting a response perhaps in the bush.
Soon, he espies it,
A bright yellow beam.....
The glow from his lady friend's tush!
