Watching Fireflies

FirleflyThat I could put you in a Mason jar,
poke a few holes,
seal the lid off tight.
Then I could put put you on a shelf,
just look at you when I want,
ignore you mostly,
regard the lights.

But you are too big for a shelf,
and a Mason jar won't hold you.
I must learn not to look,
And just control myself.
