This is simply a lovely poem. I really need to get this anthology. I'm so enjoying seeing the poems here.

Great poem to teach about insects!It reminds me when my daughter, an insect lover and her older sister found a hatched cicada with red eyes on a tree and screamed. Maybe I'll write a poem about that memory.
