Jaws, palps, compound eyes,
Pair of jumping jointed legs
Spiracles to breathe.
Wings of burnt amber
Two olfactory sensors
After visiting the Pompeii Exhibit at the Boston Science Museum, Mag and I spent some time in the various Exhibit Halls.Â In the Model Exhibit, we found this giant grasshopper.Â I liked how they peeled away the exoskeleton so one could see the complex inner mechanics of this insect.
Following is a poem about a grasshopper written by e.e. cummings.
If you are at all like me, reading this the first time, you probably are wondering "Is this really a poem?"Â It appears to be nothing more then a jumble of letters and punctuation.Â I really didn't have a clue how to dissect this piece and so I turned to google and found this site.Â After reading several analysis, understanding came.
