Here’s the poem, An Explanation Of The Grasshopper by American poet, Vachell Lindsay (1879 – 1931). You can listen to an mp3 recording of it below. Note that a Brownie is an elf who secretly helps with chores in the middle of the night. I need one of those.
The Grasshopper, the Grasshopper,
I will explain to you: --
He is the Brownies' racehorse.
The fairies Kangaroo!
