    Just read Ode to a Grasshopper and was so moved as to write my own 'Ode' to the little beast. I offer you...The Grasshopper
    late summer
    early morning
    misty meadow
    kneehigh wildflowers
    grasshopper on a goldenrod stem
    not quite awake
    grab him by his back legs
    can't get away
    spits out brown tobacco juice
    funny face
    fat body
    make a trout REAL happy
    toss him in the air
    and he flies away
    Thanx, Robert

Ode To A Toothpick

O, Quercus tall thy spreading crown endowed
thine oaken leaves an aesculean
tribute to thy Herculean strength
more powerful than all thy cousins
packed in arboreal throngs
thy sturdy lineage hard of heart
aspiring towards Olympian heights
ilician branches outstretched
guarding all, dark shadows
