GLOWWORMS
[ Also see Insects ]

Till glowworms light owl-watchmen's flight
  Through our green metropolis.
      - William Allingham, Greenwood Tree

My star, God's glowworm.
      - Robert Browning, Popularity

Tasteful illumination of the night,
  Bright scattered, twinkling star of spangled earth.
      - John Clare, To the Glowworm

While many a glowworm in the shade
  Lights up her love torch.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Nightingale

Glow-worms on the ground are moving,
  As if in the torch-dance circling.
      - Heinrich Heine, Book of Songs--Donna Clara
         (st. 17)

Here's a health to the glow-worm, Death's sober lamplighter.
      - Lord Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, 1st Earl of Lytton ("Owen Meredith"),
        Au Cafe (XXXIX)

Ye country comets, that portend
  No war not princes' funeral
    Shining unto no other end
      Than to presage the grass's fall.
      - Andrew Marvell, the Younger,
        The Mower to the Glow-worm

Ye living lamps, by whose dear light
  The nightingale does sit so late;
    And studying all the summer night,
      Her matchless songs does meditate.
      - Andrew Marvell, the Younger,
        The Mower to the Glow-worm

When evening closes Nature's eye,
  The glow-worm lights her little spark
    To captivate her favorite fly
      And tempt the rover through the dark.
      - James Montgomery, The Glow-worm

The glowworm shows the matin to be near
  And gins to pale his uneffectual fire.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Ghost at I, v)

Like a glowworm golden, in a dell of dew,
  Scattering unbeholden its aerial blue
    Among the flowers and grass which screen it from the view.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, To a Skylark

Among the crooked lanes, on every hedge,
  The glow-worm lights his gem; and through the dark,
    A moving radiance twinkles.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Summer
         (l. 1,682)
