Cicada Time ~ Gideon Roos

A Poem by Gideon T Roos

A poem in praise of the resiliance of the animal kingdom.


Early in the morning

as the sun begins

its slow climb out of bed


the beetles are already up

and showering in the 

morning dew


aunt Sara and uncle Bob

are already hanging up 

the morning washing


the spider and the

fly are already

playing the game of life


little Jimmy

and Naughty Jon

have already lost a ball


and the ant and

termite empires are

already hard hard at war


As the golden round

reaches the hight

of its reign


aunt Sara and uncle Bob

have passed out on the bed;

the majority of their clothes lie haphazardly in their stead


little Jimmy and Naughty Jon

are lying under a tree;

their skin dotted with the drops of water from their earlier swimming spree




the beetles are still

hard at work gathering

food for the night


the spider and the

fly have yet

to return to their stalls


and the ant and

termite empires

are still building up their walls
