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