  1. The poet calls the cricket silly i.e. a fool because he did not made appropriate use of his time. During the summer season there was plenty of food as well as material available for making shelter. However he did not care about the future.

    He thought that the joy of summer and spring will remain forever. Hence he kept singing. When the winters appeared, he had nothing to eat nor shelter to save himself from chilling cold.
