A Bug

(Unfinished Sketch / In Progress)

It happed one day that through a thick-leaved forest wandered I
And in that dark buzzed what I thought an ordinary fly


"If not to pester me, foul creature, why fly thus at night?"
"Let me demonstrate," I heard, and sure enough: a light!
"An ordinary bug I am, invisible, by day;
So when the sun is hid I wake", it said, and lit my way;
And before soon the stars and moon we spotted merrily.
"What such relief!" I thought, then said, and thanked him heartily;
Then brighter still my wing├Ęd friend drew geometric shapes:
Shine where you are seen! we sang,
Shine where you are seen!
