The Grammy goes to...


eager crickets sing in chorus

at the top of their lungs 


gusts rustle leaflets

in the string section of dwarf palms


nervous gnat raises his falsetto 

as high as he can


dragonfly’s baritone buzz

upstages her wingspan 


pileated woodpecker plays his pine 

keeping on the beat


tufted titmouse takes her tenor solo

melodic and neat


wind makes her sound-bed

reverb shakes the beetles


pine cone loudly plummets

to a thud landing on needles


cooper’s hawk soars downstage 

belting out his call


Academy judges sit perplexed 

suits and gowns at the ball

Haha – thanks, Paul. Not sure who I’d award it to.
