Whisper by Adriana Buonocore

I heard little footsteps
in the crackling leaves
like a tiny bug
had fallen off a branch
I witnessed a creature
glowing as a light
tip-toeing along the pond

It lit up so softly!
I thought it would fade
So quiet
So lovely!
It couldn't see my awe
It was my little secret
And it floated away

I heard a giggling
They were laughing at me
As if they knew what I saw
So forbidden
But they let it pass
And they danced away
Back to their mysterious lives
