I posted this a long time ago, and this pin has had more repins and likes than any other thing I have put on Pinterest. I just found out that the poem is NOT by Emily Dickinson, but it is by a poet named Colleen Corah Hitchcock. Sorry for the wrong information and also sorry it isn't by Emily Dickinson cause I really like her poetry.

Fireflies in the Garden Here come real stars to fill the upper skies, And here on earth come emulating flies, That though they never equal stars in size, (And they were never really stars at heart) Achieve at times a very star-like start. Only, of course, they can’t sustain the part. Robert Frost
