|Charles Dickens makes the association of |
the cricket on the hearth with human feel-
ing & actions linking this moment to one's
fate in his book "Cricket On The Hearth."
Tonight enter her poetic interval
attend a cricket in your hearth’s deep song
Hestian plumes these fumes lumen
pneuma neither of gods nor men
