Crickets at Dawn
 
Leonora Speyer
 
 
ALL night the crickets chirp,
Like little stars of twinkling sound
In the dark silence.
 
They sparkle through the summer stillness
With a crisp rhythm:        5
They lift the shadows on their tiny voices.
 
But at the shining note of birds that wake,
Flashing from tree to tree till all the wood is lit—
O golden coloratura of dawn!—
The cricket-stars fade slowly,        10
One by one.
