Nature's Violinist

Dr Abe V Rotor
 Living with Nature School on Blog
Field cricket (Acheta bimaculata) is nature's violinist  

Aesop called you like your kin, the grasshopper, sluggard,
       For heeding not your want for the rainy day;
In summer you fiddle all day and the whole night through,
       Lilting the spirits of those at work or at play.

I say, what could earn best their place and their existence,
       But to unburden the load of the world;
Etching a living, each thought nothing else but living,
       Than sweet violin and a li’l kind word?
