The time for “peepers” is past,

Their replacements growing fast…

Not until next year

Will we hear

Their choruses at last!

August night times creak

With cicada and katydid speak…

Consistent one pitch

Late summer bugs’ itch,

Renewing every week.

If katydids come inside,

The frightened are fit to be tied…

On curtain rods

There are good odds,

A man must rescue his bride!!!!!
