Chirp!   Chirp!   Chirp!

Crickets in the bushes
Crickets in the grass
Happy chirping voices
Singing songs that last

They sing in perfect unison
Their melodies are light
Singing like a gospel choir
All throughout the night

Except for one little cricket
He is different than the rest
He sings a special song for me
And truly….he’s the best

His voice is a little deeper
His song is loud and clear
He sings it rather slowly
This message for me to hear

He says to me

Slow down Miss Sherry….just a little bit
Don’t worry – everything is fine
You are where you should be
And you’re in perfect time

What’s the rush?  Bah!
Let your big blue voice be heard
Dare to be different from the rest
Your destiny is your words.

Thank you Holy Cricket for the message so divine
