KATYDIDS
[ Also see Insects ]

Thou art a female, Katydid!
  I know it by the trill
    That quivers through thy piercing notes
      So petulant and shrill.
        I think there is a knot of you
          Beneath the hollow tree,
            A knot of spinster Katydids,--
              Do Katydids drink tea?
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., To an Insect

Where the katydid works her chromatic reed on the walnut-tree over the well.
      - Walt Whitman,
        Leaves of Grass--Song of Myself
         (pt. 33, l. 61)
