Fireflies
By Adolf Wolff
 
I
  CHILDREN of the poor—
Little plants
In sandy soil,
Among rocks, weeds, cans, old papers,
And other junk        5
In the shadow of a wall.
Little plants—
Children of the poor.
 
II
  From the gallery,
The orchestra—        10
A swarm of bees
Making honey,
Honey made of
Sound.
 
III
  Bud
        15
Needing opening—
Let me open you.
Fruit
Needing ripening—
Let me ripen you.        20
