Devotedly
For two weeks, the Moon has traveled the sky,
collecting light, when she finds something shining...
picking it up, and putting it in her bag,
the way kids capture fireflies, and put them in a jar—
it may sound strange, but it's harmless,
enchanting those of us who gaze, devotedly.

Hopscotch, Kick-the-Can, Hide & Seek:
I know all the games...
when her jar is full, she'll let the fireflies out,
one-by-one, 'til it's empty again—
Oh, it may sound strange, but it's harmless,
enchanting those of us who gaze, devotedly...
devotedly
