Oreo Oreo

Miriam felt that a wolf spider was stalking our pet cricket, Oreo who lives in a small indented "crouching pit" next to the refrigerator   So I followed the spider’s wanderings then put a glass jar atop slid a paper underneath & carried it out to the garden   She pointed out that Oreo had halted its chirping while the wolf was on the floor   then resumed          when I carried it out:   When the wolf peeks through the door-jamb no more baaing from the lamb
