 It is a fable in poetic form. A fable is a story, often with animals as characters,that conveys a moral.This poem about an ant and a cricket contains an idea of far reaching significance, which is as true of a four legged cricket as of a two legged ones. You must have seen a cricket that has two leggs.This is the story of a cricket who spent his summer singing. When the winter came he started starving. He went to ant and wished to borrow grain. But they asked him what he did in summer.He replied that he sang in the summer. They asked him to dance in winter. There are crickets in our society. Some have four legs some have two.
