The blog's first-ever poem...

What's this moth?
It's rather lame
But I haven't a clue.
Maybe a Flame?

Comment below
If you know its name

Can I be Oxford Professor of Poetry now please...

(But seriously, what is it? I would call it the Fag-end. It came a couple of nights ago and it's certainly distinctive. Judging by its shoulder mark, it's a lance-corporal. The Flame looks the likeliest bet, but I am usually wrong. Solutions gratefully received).

you were right to call it a Flame

A Flame so bright
almost twig like
sits so still
avoiding Bird's bill

etc etc ditty ditty :D

Brill - thanks BennyB, I had a feeling that you would know. The verse is excellent too...
