The Grasshopper

{Photo:Reed's Photography}

Grasshopper
grasshopper
all day long
we hear your scraping
summer song
like
rusty
fiddles
in
the
grass
as through
the meadow
path
we pass
such funny legs
such funny feet
and how we wonder
what you eat
maybe a single blink of dew
sipped from a clover leaf would do
then high in air
once more you spring
to fall in grass again
and sing.
{Conrad Aiken}

Wow! I can't believe you were able to get that picture. You must have been very stealthy, sneaking up on him.
