Thou art a female, Katydid!
  I know it by the trill
That quivers through thy piercing notes
  So petulant and shrill.
I think there is a knot of you
  Beneath the hollow tree,
A knot of spinster Katydids,—
  Do Katydids drink tea?
        ~ Holmes—To an Insect.

“O’er folded blooms On swirls of musk, The beetle booms adown the glooms And bumps along the dusk.”

~ James Whitcomb Riley

“Most Internet users seem to have the attention span of grasshoppers.

~ Stephen King

“All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be detestable to you. There are, however, some winged creatures that walk on all fours that you may eat: those that have jointed legs for hopping on the ground.Of these you may eat any kind of locust, katydid, cricket or grasshopper. But all other winged creatures that have four legs you are to detest.”

Bible: Leviticus 11

“Little ladybug on my arm
you wear a heart as part of your charm
You joined me on this sunny day
just for a moment then you flew away.”
~ Author Unknown
