XXVIII. To a Cricket

Voice of summer, keenl and shrill,1
Chirping round my winter fire,
Of thy song I never tire,
Weary 2 others as they will,
For thy song with summer's filled
Filled with sunshine, filled with June;
Firelight 3 echo of that noon,
Heard in fields when all is stilled 4
In the golden light of May,
Bringing scents of new-mown 5 hay,
Bees, and birds, and flowers away,
Prithee,s haunt? my fireside 3 still,
Voice of summer, keen and shrill.
WILLIAM BENNETT.
