what is the central idea of the grasshopper and cricket

Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

'On the grasshopper and the cricket' is a nature poem in which the grasshopper and the cricket are symbolic of the two different seasons of summer and winter respectively. The poet says that 'the poetry of the earth' or the songs of life and colour never stop. They continue throughout the year through a cycle of seasons.  The winter season that is represented by the cricket seems difficult. This is because it tries to sing with a shrill, amidst the frozen winter, while the grasshopper rest in ease.

I hope you find this answer helpful. Please post more questions on the forum to be assisted by our team.
