Green Is the Grasshopper — a poem

Public Domain Pictures

Green is the grasshopper
on the sidewalk; green sidewalker,
flighty hopper, green walk signal.

Hopping mud dauber;
daubing mudder, another mudder,
a load of mud daub bobbing by.

Butter yellow butterfly; butter
flying wafting by — wafting
butter as I pass I spy.

Alliterative litter of little
bitter butter mudder hoppers
green and yellow — Oregon’s colors!

No ducks or beavers, though.
