Just Rewards

Summer leapers dancing in flight
Strumming four limbs and pursuing delight
Antennae quivers while mandibles tear
Barley’s long whiskers – till kernels are bare

Long legged fiddler no shelter he seeks
All summer he plays while filling his cheeks
As the weather changes, cold winds blow his way,
Winter’s deadly reaper’s toll, ending his soiree.

– Clarence Holm
