KATYDIDS AND CICADAS!!!

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!!!!!

WHAT WE EXPERIENCED

WHAT WE EXPERIENCED

In our observation logs,

Did we see pollywogs?

If our search was a little wider

We’d have found a water strider!

True, we saw flowers invade

Various kinds of moving shade…

Night sound from which we hid:

Bobcats, cicada and katydids!

Never did get to the beach,

Crowds and prices beyond our reach…

But ice cream we did consume

Extra servings breakfast and non.

Made the best of a boring summer–

Without Word Press it’s a boring summer…

Blogging kept us all sane,

Now how to remove this coffee stain???
