Why The Cricket Sings

I heard the cricket sing a lullaby

at first it sighed then I heard it cry

It played a tune so sweet, full of passion

it poured out all its emotions

It was all too much

that the rain clouds fell and the stars

danced on the moon beam


The frog echoed in harmonious chorus

as the cricket played its violin

Sweet melody and the night sang along

When it ended, it was suddenly silent

and the cricket went its way

We were left wondering

why the cricket sings
