The Kittsalfly

At midnight on the harvest moon when night replaces day
Itís then the Kittsalfly will come to frolic and to play
Awaking from its slumber in the valley of the moon
It only has one night of fun that passes all too soon

It runs and tumbles through the sky while chasing shooting stars
Then swats the planets all around, first Jupiter then Mars
It sneaks up on a comet just to pull its fiery tail
Then playfully it runs away leaving a stardust trail

But when it needs to take a break from all its fun and play
The Kittsalfly will take a cool drink from the Milky Way
When the night comes to an end and it is time to rest
Then it returns back to its home and its warm starlit nest

Until the harvest moon returns and midnight rolls around
The Kittsalfly will dream of play and slumber safe and sound
So on that magic night my dears if you will watch the sky
Then you might be the one to see the magic Kittsalfly

I will be looking for sure - you know I believe in magic.  I also believe in your ability to make me smile.

You are always a treat to read, dear Stephen, as you carry us into a magical sphere and bring smiles.

Beautifully done! A sip from the milky way ... what a fantasy you have. Awesome!

Love,

Another magical write from your magical star pen! I find your poems of childhood wonder, enchanting.

Your inner child always touches the inner child in me!

I didn't see the picture when I first read this poem - dial up can be so slow sometimes, ya know.  I was going to bring this poem back even not seeing the picture - because it is a wonderful, whimsical poem that appeals to me.

Thank you again for being one to bring magic to the boards of PiP.
