Grasshopper

“Happy insect! what can be In happiness compared to thee?
Fed with nourishment divine, The dewy morning’s gentle wine!
Nature waits upon thee still, And thy verdant cup does fill;
‘Tis fill’d wherever thou dost tread, Nature’s self’s thy Ganymede.”

Abraham Cowley, 1616-1667
English poet
Anacreontiques (no. 10, Grasshopper)”
