Toads to Sleep


Gone are fuzzy bees

And chirping crickets,

Leafy trees,

And shady thickets.


Gone are thunderstorms

And sprouting seeds,

Mosquito swarms,

And millipedes.


I knew summer wouldn't last

And in the cold would creep.

But who's ever ready for the winter blast--

That sends the toads to sleep?
