Fiery Feathers

They said it was just an illusion
A trick of the moonlight
The will-o'-the-wisp
Or just the imagination

But I didn't believe them
I had to see for myself

And one night I went
To the place they saw it fly
Just to see if it was real
Or if they were right

I hid among the trees
And watched the sky as Luna rose

Crickets were slowly humming
But they gradually stopped

Anticipating something's coming

And I saw it fly

As fiery feathers trailed its way.
