The last firefly,

cupped gently,

before night takes hold.

    Fireflies keep shining well after night has taken hold. If you mean something different, you need to think about your commas.

    It’s just the last firefly before the little girl goes to bed!

    ask every word…

    last firefly
    cupped gently –
    night takes hold

    Hi Gene,
    I wonder about something like:

    turning in –
    her last firefly
    cupped gently


    porch light –
    her last firefly
    cupped gently

    I couldn’t seem to find the right L1, but just wanted to show you this form.
