POET'S CORNER FOR FALL AND WINTER, 2007


    "ON THE GRASSHOPPER AND CRICKET"

    The poetry of earth is never dead:
    When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,
    And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run
    From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead;
    That is the grasshopper's - he takes the lead
    In summer luxury, - he has never done
    With his delights, for when tired out with fun
    He rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed.
    The poetry of earth is ceasing never:
    On a lone winter evening, when the frost
    Has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrills
    The cricket's song, in warmth increasing ever,
    And seems to one, in drowsiness half-lost,
    The grasshopper's among some grassy hills.
