FIELD WIRELESS, by            
First Line: Firefly and cricket
Last Line: When people grow sleepy.
Subject(s): Insects; Bugs

Firefly and cricket
Have set up their wireless
In the fields, and tireless
They flash and click-click it.

What are they saying?
The long day is over;
The dew's on the clover:
It's time to stop playing.

There's more. They are spelling
Which way the wind's blowing,
How fast things are growing,
How good they are smelling.

Oh! I wish I could utter
Half that they're sending
And receiving, blending
Their spark and their sputter.

Sometimes you feel creepy
To think they are talking
With things that go walking
When people grow sleepy.
