Summer Symphony

    “Summer Symphony,” Friend, Aug. 2000, 32

    Summer Symphony

    Crickets strum on guitar wings,

    Grasshoppers twang their violin strings,

    A bullfrog beats his throaty drum,

    And bees in the honeysuckle add their hum.

    While wind plays a flute through ripply leaves,

    Birds whistle songs on a passing breeze.

    Nature tunes up and plays for me

    Her bright summer evening symphony.
