Story

I drive the same road every summer to Camp Nuhop to sing, and on the way home I pass a spot where the fireflies rise.....I have heard they do sing but have yet to hear them myself.  Check out the links page under Toe Tapping Songs or visit www.sillybooks.net to find this song illustrated in book form for children.

Lyrics

FIREFLIES

Winding along a dusky road

Daylight is fading ‘round the bend

Misty summer evenings in the wheatfields and the corn

Memorize it so it will not end


There’s magic in the scene before my eyes

A chorus of cicadas fills the trees

The scent of clover in the air is something I might hold

In my hand as it passes on the breeze


And the fireflies rise

Drifting toward the darkness with their light

While the woodthrush song fills the skies

As the fireflies rise


Like strand on strand of tiny blinking lights

Signals flash and so begins the dance

Daylight evaporates slowly while I watch

And wonder at this delicate romance


And the fireflies rise

Drifting toward the darkness with their light

While the woodthrush song fills the skies

As the fireflies rise


And sometimes when they’re on the wing

I’ve heard it said that fireflies sing....


And the fireflies rise

Drifting toward the darkness with their light

While the woodthrush song fills the skies

As the fireflies rise
