Raphia frater (The Brother)


Collected Millis MA 9/24/2008. These guys have been common on big-tooth poplar all summer long. A delightful little caterpillar.

I am stricken with grief
when there is, on my leaf,
such a horrible, hideous crater!
I know, cause I’m shrewd,
that the leaf was the food,
of the rude little Raphia Frater.

I venture to see
where the cretin might be,
and I hope to see, sooner or later.
I am stricken with grief,
for he looks like a leaf,
does the beefy ol’ Raphia Frater.
