On a sultry night

Late in summer

When one could easily forget

That the weather will soon turn cool

I follow its yellow-green glow

Across the yard

Until it flits

To somewhere beyond my sight


I do not know it then

But I have just seen

My last firefly of the season

And I wish

I could remind myself

To savor that moment
