The whole long, yellow afternoon
the sun boiled down so hot
the heat squiggled up in waves
from the meadow.

As a slow, languid afternoon fades away, a young girl can hardly wait. "Maybe tonight we'll see the firefly mountain," her mother had whispered to her.

"Maybe," her father had said. "When it's dark..."

She's not sure just what a firefly mountain is. But it's clearly something remarkable. As the time crawls by and the yellow afternoon becomes a purple evening, her anticipaton builds.

Before long,
the barn
and the house
and the orchard
melted into black shapes
in the black dark around us.

At last it is time. Her family sets off on a walk through the black, black night. What wonder waits for them at the top of the hill?
