The city is hot on this summer day.
And cricket is looking for a cool place to stay.
Building to building. Nothing to do.
The doors keep closing before she can get through.
“I’m bored. I wish I had something to do.”
And jumped right into a brown coat of MOO!
“What are you doing here in my park?”
“I’m looking for shade from the heat until dark.”
“There’s shade by the tree. But stay out of the way.
I’m doing my morning kung fu today.”
With a kick from the cow, the cricket jumped to the right.
And watched the old cow punch with all her might.
The city seemed far, and the wind seemed strong.
And the cricket decided to follow along.
“That’s not quite right, but I like your style.
Would you like to do some kung fu for a while?”
So they get in position. And they kick. And they punch.
The old cow and the cricket are friends before lunch.
Surrounded by city, in this park in the shade.
They practice kung fu till the sun starts to fade.
“May I come tomorrow? I want to get better.”
“Of course, little cricket. You’re such a go getter.”
“I’ll see you tomorrow. I want to learn more.”
She just couldn’t wait to see what was in store.
The city is full of fun things to be found,
as long as you’re willing to wander around.
