Summer Nights – A Kyrielle

 Summer nights in sweltering heat.

Crickets chirp ne’er miss a beat.

Cheerful song, devil-may-care.

Like a knife cuts stagnant air.

~

Ribbit goes the frog in pond.

Male to female they both respond.

Spawning tadpole the two a pair.

Like a knife cuts stagnant air.

~

Heat of night does not deter.

Frog and cricket both concur.

Beautiful songs they both do share.

Like a knife cuts stagnant air.
