I Saw 10 Thousand Fireflies Today
You wouldn't believe how many dragonflies I saw today.
They came out with the sun and filled the field like 10 thousand golden snitches.
I don't know what they eat; there was a mushroom at my feet
And it looked like a rose.
There was 10 thousand goldenrods.
"They are invasive and need to be eradicated."
I think they make me sneeze but they're beautiful.
I picked vegetables for you in the gardens.
The richest red cherry tomatoes I stole for myself off the vine and warm from the
day's sun. So sweet you get they're a fruit.
Piper ran and fetched and I biked in circles around the driveway in my bare feet.
I biked more and went down the street to a hilltop where you can see for miles
Rolling hills of corn, and grazing pastures.
I went and stood at the feet of my tree.
I became we and there was nothing to see.
There was nothing to see.
