Til Dawn

Have you ever lounged outside

At the setting of the sun?

Only to see as one light goes out

More begin?

For the lightning bug arrives

With its electric beam

Bobbing up and down

On the grass

But not just one

For the community of light breaks forth

To dance in parabolic hue

The dance til dawn

For as one light goes out

Another emerges in hope

Anticipating the dawn but

Not knowing its arrival

Yet it dances before the moon

Dances in the shadows

Letting forth its light

Before men

And so does the church

After the sun had set

Anticipating the return of the

Dawn of Day
