"Fujio! Even when you have become a young man, laugh with pleasure at a girl's delight when, told that its a grasshopper, she is given a bell cricket; laugh with affection at a girl's chagrin when, told that it's a bell cricket, she is given a grasshopper.

Even if you have wit to look by yourself in a bush away from the other children, there are not many other bell crickets in the world. Probably you will find a girl like a grasshopper whom you think is a bell cricket.

And finally, to your clouded, wounded heart, even a true bell cricket will seem like a grasshopper. SHould that day come, when it seems to you that the world is only full of grasshoppers, I will think it a pity that you have no waay to remember tonight's play of light, when your name was written in green by your beautiful lantern on a girl's breast." -Kawabata Yasunari
