INSECT SEER


I am the architectural wonder
Of the grand and crawly insect world

I can bend my body better than
Any flag that's been unfurled

If I had a mirror to see my fearful symmetry
I'd run away from its awful physiognomy

They say that after amorous romance
I'll masticate my mate after the dance
(But not always)

And after all it's what's in my genetic code
The same wondrous stuff that's inside a jumping toad

So if you see me walking slowly across a leaf
Oh please do not squash my graceful torso
It is just looking for some sweet morsel!

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
