It is Summer, Once Again Fireflies in the Garden

It is Summer, Once Again Fireflies in the Garden

BY ~ Robert Frost

Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,

And here on earth come emulating flies,

That though they never equal stars in size,

(And they were never really stars at heart)

Achieve at times a very star-like start.

Only, of course, they can’t sustain the part.

When late spring melts into summer, humid evenings host more insects than just mosquitos. At dusk, the yellow flashes of fireflies appear in the haze of suburban yards and forest edges across Georgia, delighting children and adults.

The magic of June nights in GA is here once again. I go out on my back patio after sunset to see the marvelous creatures flashing like little stars in the darkened woods. I am mesmerized by the sight and thank the Creator for this wonderous site.
