National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: Books/Kids Books and Atlases/Animals and Nature

"Out of a windless August night
A luna moth in ghostly light
Beat softly on my window screen
Tick-tick-ticking-all silver green.
She whispered secrets in my ear—
I am but a stranger here.
The stars are scrawled across the sky/By ghostwriters, the Moon and I.
You will not see me here tonight—/I have a thousand stars to write.”
