Mid-summer Symphony

Mister Big Black, you hum for whom?
To my glossy first love who likes to zoom.
Let’s jump from here to another tree.
See if there's a good brew we can get for free!

Little Clearwings, you sing for whom?
My song dedicated to the beauty in the classroom.
Do you see her exuvae on the wall?
Do you think she will answer my romantic call?

Golden Romeo, what is your musical tone?
I am praising the tree that I call home.
Her roots has raised and sheltered me,
I beg you also keep my children safe please…

Has anyone see Grassy, with his stained glass wings?
Yes, he’s just emerged and help our choir sing.
We spent years to prepare and welcome this newcomer,
To perform the most wonderful symphony in this summer!
