FIREFLIES
[ Also see Insects ]

Before, beside us, and above
  The firefly lights his lamp of love.
      - Reginald Heber, Tour Through Ceylon

Is it where the flow'r of the orange blows,
  And the fireflies dance thro' the myrtle boughs?
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans, The Better Land

And the fireflies, Wah-wah-taysee,
  Waved their torches to mislead him.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hiawatha

The fireflies o'er the meadow
  In pulses come and go.
      - James Russell Lowell, Midnight (st. 3)

Tiny Salmoneus of the air
  His mimic bolts the firefly threw.
      - James Russell Lowell, The Lesson

Now, motionless and dark, eluded search
  Self-shrouded: and anon, starring the sky,
    Rose like a shower of fire.
      - Robert Southey, Madoc (pt. II)

Many a night I saw the Pleiads, rising thro' the mellow shade
  Glitter like a swarm of fireflies tangled in a silver braid.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Locksley Hall (l. 9)
