end of summer

End-of-Summer Poem


The little songs of summer are all gone today.

The little insect instruments are all packed away:

The bumblebee's snare drum, the grasshopper's guitar,

The katydid's castanets—I wonder where they are.

The bullfrog's banjo, the cricket's violin,

The dragonfly's cello have ceased their merry din.

Oh, where is the orchestra? From harpist down to drummer

They've all disappeared with the passing of the summer.


—Rowena Bastin Bennett


texture : skeletal mess


Have a peaceful easter.
