Marsh Life


The crickets gently creek their knees,
The cicadas can be harsh,
But the bullfrog has the loudest voice
Residing in the marsh.

The June bugs do a fairy dance,
The dragonflies are haughty,
But the owl is still the wisest, yet,
Because he is so thoughty.

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!

  1. Making up a word like thoughty
    Doesn’t qualify as naughty.

    And speaking of dragonflies that are haughty, I’m reminded that the word haughty comes from French haut, which means high. Today by coincidence I posted a photograph I took of a dragonfly that was etymologically haughty; it had settled on the tip of a stalk that was on elevated ground and therefore higher than my line of sight, a position in which I don’t often get to see dragonflies:


    1. Thanks for the laugh! I live in South Florida, and the dragonflies don’t travel in ones and twos, but rather in squadrons and platoons. They are fun to watch. I can’t wait to check out your blog!
