Miss Marcella Moth

Miss Marcella Moth, quite early one June,
Came out in the evening in the light of the moon.

     She flitted and fluttered in the moon’s silver glow
     Then fluttered some more and then where did she go?

Well, she saw in the distance the glow of a light,
It’s bright golden beam shining into the night. 
     So Miss Marcella Moth, thinking she would explore,
     Flew up to this house and went in through the door.

She flitted and fluttered by the light’s golden ray,
But her wings touched the light and she cried in dismay.

     With one very burnt wing she quite soon disappeared
     Saying: 'I'll stay in my garden.  It's safer out here.'
