after summer, I have seen
A marching army on our screen;
Their bright red armors marked with spots
Were speckled black in solid dots!
crawled in clusters, then they flew
Across the green yard to the blue.
And I could tell, before my eyes
They were some creatures for their size!
did they go? Where do they hide
Inside these days of Autumn tide?
Will they return when Robins sing
To join the colored days of Spring?"
