Poem by Boedecker

Here's a poem from Niels Mogens Boedecker, who was an illustrator and author of children's books.

"Mosquito is out,

it's the end of the day;

she's humming and hunting

her evening away.

Who knows why such hunger

arrives on such wings at sundown? I guess

it's the nature of things."
