THE MOTH, by            
First Line: The moth a merry caper
Last Line: Upon the carpet, dead.
Subject(s): Moths

The moth a merry caper
Around my flagon turned,
Supposing it a taper
That in the shadows burned.

With beating wings he hung him
About the flame I shed,
Until the flagon flung him
Upon the carpet, dead.
