Tadpole Comets

Poem from Dancing in the Rain by John Lyons

Tadpoles huddled in a pond
afraid of the Carribean night,
its intense darkness.

Candleflies moving about,
lighting up and going out,
lighting up and going out.

The tiniest tadpole shouted,
"What's that, what's that!"

"They're comets, silly,"
cried Billy, the largest tadpole.
