A MINOR POET, by                    
First Line: The firefly, flickering about
Last Line: To make a summer evening gay.
Subject(s): Fireflies; Glowworms

THE firefly, flickering about
In busy brightness, near and far
Lets not his little lamp go out
Because he cannot be a star.
He only seeks, the hour he lives,
Bravely his tiny part to play,
And all his being freely gives
To make a summer evening gay.
