Milly the moth.

"I'm Milly the Moth,
And I fly at night.
To call me a butterfly,
Would not be right.
If you open the window,
And put on the light,
I might come and see you,
One fine summer's night."

-Porter G

And, where do you read al lthis poetry from ? You have a thousand books or do you google for your inspirations?

Beautiful capture...

I had this thing for moths during my 11th standard, and I'd sit observing them from that || close for two hours and sometimes three.. They're so calm if you're calm..

Meghana Naidu said...

That, is so true.
Ive always found butterflies annoying. charming at times, maybe when they flutter
but then
a moth
is so much more beautiful
this particular one sat next to a light bulb for a whole evening.

thank you :)

Zlaek said...

Yes, a moth is way more mature than a butterfly :D
