CRICKETS AT DAWN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: All night the crickets chirp
Last Line: One by one.
Subject(s): Crickets

All night the crickets chirp,
Like little stars of twinkling sound
In the dark silence.

They sparkle through the summer stillness
With a crisp rhythm:
They lift the shadows on their tiny voices.

But at the shining note of birds that wake,
Flashing from tree to tree till all the wood is lit --
O golden coloratura of dawn!--
The cricket-stars fade slowly,
One by one.
