A drawing to illuminate the beautiful song “Little Moth” by Melissa Margaret Thorson.

“Little Moth”

Little moth flying in the air How I wish that I could be As free as you seem
As you dance and flutter Past my window in the dark Oh where are you going

Or do you even need to know

Little moth looking for a candleflame Or a lamp on a table
In a room somewhere
Are you searching for some brightness You can dance around

Oh what are you looking for Or do you even need to know

Do you need to know
What that brightness will look like
Do you need to know
How you’ll recognize it when it comes Do you need to know
If you’ll live to dance another day
Or be swallowed up and burned away

Little moth I saw you passing by
Here and there and gone again
Won’t you come again some other day And share with me the brightness That makes magic for your wings

Oh how can you dance like that Or do you even need to know
