The phrase “take the lead in summer luxury” is used for the grasshopper’s singing. According to the poet, when the sun heats up during the summer, all the birds hide themselves and their chirping is heard no more.
At such a time, the grasshopper appears and takes the lead of keeping the nature alive. It keeps singing and hopping from one hedge to the other.
