The theme of the poem The Ant and The Cricket is that hard work always pays and carelessness always lead to suffering. The ant made the best use of its time. He collected food and made shelter for itself. Hence he was able to survive during the chilling winters.
On the other hand, the cricket kept singing during the summer. He thought that the comfort of this season will remain forever. But the time changed. Winter appeared. The cricket had nothing to eat and no shelter.
Thus every person should be like ant and not cricket because those who work hard remain happy in tough times while those who don’t have to suffer.
