I heard the locusts today....

For the first week in July...that is early....we usually do not hear them till mid August about 2 weeks prior to school starting. SO I found it interesting today when I opened the front door to get the mail the locusts would be chirping away in the trees!

It made me want to write a poem here it is:

I heard the locusts again today...

High up in the trees

Creating such a racket

One could barely hear the breeze

I stood a bit in disbelief

To hear this sound so soon

Back in childhood days

This was a sign of doom

Cause it always occurred in August

Bout' two weeks before school would start

When time only seemed to escalate

And our summer days would soon part

I heard the locusts last week, I had always heard it was 6 weeks until school starts when you hear the first one!

Nice poem!
