Night Fliers

_____________________________________

Flattened against the house wall

Moths appear on warming nights

Electric duping instinct

Hunkered under bright porch lights

*

Not dull or boring at all

Butterflies with evening flight

Flecked, ruffled each one distinct

Look closely, they will delight.
