Five Crickets

by Heather L Campbell

May 6, 2014


Five crickets over by the creek,

All discussed heading for the bay

They wanted to see the big “world”

On a few leaves they got away


Then the water picked up some speed

Those green little crickets sailed by

Their entire world was spinning fast

As the waters edge seemed to fly


The big bay was now up ahead

So much bigger than they all thought

Oh my goodness” they all chirped out

Just whatever have we all sought?”


In unison they all cried out

Why did we ever want to roam’

So tempting to see the big world…

Now we all want to go back home…


They all jumped high and reached the shore

Now heading back to their homestead

When the happy crickets returned

Their amazing tale was soon spread
