Moths are creatures of the night
and they are not known for their brains,
for they are so in love with the light
that they often fly into open flames.
But moths never get to see the sun,
whose shine can fill the entire sky;
of all the lights they miss the brightest one,
which they could see if they just opened up their eyes.
Moths are so foolish that they sleep away
the warmest and brightest part of the day.
If they knew how bright the stars really were,
would they still waste their lives over one small fire?
