    Lorenz,
    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

by none, yet sweet as bird
song ringing through dark silent night
lark of morning singing light
refrains of love songs, sterling bright
as your hidden eyes delight,
your empty lips, like mine,
all too alone
in verse;

and I love you
for what you see in me
that those with eyes refused to see
I standing here before them still, , ,
they turned away because I do not fit
their fantastic images
of all that they pretended ...

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
