Green little vaulter, in the sunny grass, Catching your heart up at the feel of June, Sole noise thats heard amidst the lazy noon, When evn the bees lag at the summoning brass. Leigh HuntTo the Grasshopper and the Cricket.
When all the birds are faint with the hot sun, And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead; That is the grasshoppershe takes the lead In summer luxuryhe has never done With his delights, for when tired out with fun, He rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed. KeatsOn the Grasshopper and Cricket.
