Crickets Chirp

Crickets chirp, and fireflies glow,
Fairies flying to and fro.
Bats haphazardly swerve and swoop,
Crazy pilot loop de loop.

Purple sunset in the sky,
Birds chirping in trees up high.
Full moon rising in the east,
While the bats enjoy their insect feast

Singing frogs and toads appear,
Fine baritones, for all to hear.
A festive riot at the end of day,
All night life comes out to play.

But after my making thou write more true!
