Even though summer’s almost over, I’m working on a poem that references the insect sounds that make a summer night:  crickets, cicadas, katydids (grasshoppers),  and frogs.   The only bird sound is an occasional owl until very early in the morning.  Strangely,  the sounds are musical, but not melodic.  I’m still having trouble getting the words right, but I’m enjoying the research.
