Formicid Form: Four in the Morning

The Daily Ant maintains “Formicid Form”, a Sunday ant poetry series. When possible, our Verse Correspondant, Natalia Piland, provides a short commentary at the end of each poem. Enjoy!


Four in the Morning

By Maria Wisława Anna Szymborska, Nobel Prize Laureate

No one feels good at four in the morning.
If ants feel good at four in the morning
–three cheers for the ants. And let five o’clock come
if we’re to go on living.


Verse Correspondant Natalia Piland writes: “Three cheers for me, thank you very much.”
