Fireflies in the Night Sky

IMG_2341 Lorri Shipp, 2014

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.

Robert Frost, American Poet
