The firefly, that sweet symbol of summer nights, and new found love.

O firefly

You gilded luminary

Of summer love


We lie together

In evening dew

And watch you encircle us

Your light reflecting

Our love, so new


O firefly

You winged one so very

Bright, like our love


She seems to see you

As a symbol, whose hue

Shines as bright and clear

As do the feelings

Between us two


But somehow

The romance it does not bring

As I pledge my love

With this newly

Fashioned ring


I slide it to her finger

I simply cannot linger

This ring that means so much

Glows from the light of twenty

Firefly butts.


My love responds,

Not sweetly…

Did you tell her you loved her when presenting her with the ring. Maybe she wanted more words from you and more trust from you than the quick fire on a summer's eve. That is my opinion, but I may be wrong. Take care.
