Apology

I mistakenly called Emily Kennerck the first winner. She, as of this point, is still a loser. Emily Keller is the first winner of the Cicada Drawing Contest. I am sorry for the mistake. My editor has been fired.

Neil Diamond wants you to know Emily Kennerk, a personal "diamondized" friend is not a loser. On her behalf, I am sending a little known song by me. I only sing it once every 17 years to the track of "Kentucky Woman". (which is really Indiana Woman, but Kentucky sounded better)
All my love,
Neil

here it is..
Sung to: Neil Diamond “ Kentucky Woman” or "The Wheels on the Bus"

The cicadas in the ground go sleep, sleep, sleep.
Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep.
The cicadas in the ground go sleep, sleep, sleep.
For seventeen years.
The cicadas in the ground go dig, dig, dig,
Dig, dig, dig, dg, dig, dig.
The cicadas in the ground go dig, dig, dig,
To come up to fresh air.
The cicadas in the trees go climb, climb, climb,
Climb, climb, climb, climb, climb, climb.
The cicadas in the trees go climb, climb, climb.
To come up to fresh air.
The cicadas in the trees go burst, burst, burst,
Burst, burst, burst, burst, burst, burst.
The cicadas in the trees go burst, burst, burst,
To get out of their shells.
The cicadas in the trees go sing, sing, sing,
Sing, sing, sing, sing, sing, sing.
The cicadas in the trees go sing, sing, sing,
All day long.
The cicadas in the trees go lay, lay, lay,
Lay, lay, lay, lay, lay, lay.
The cicadas in the trees go lay, lay, lay,
New eggs in the trees.
The cicadas in the trees go hatch, hatch, hatch,
Hatch, hatch, hatch, hatch, hatch, hatch.
The cicadas in the trees go hatch, hatch, hatch,
And fall down to the ground.
The cicadas in the ground go sleep, sleep, sleep.
Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep.
The cicadas in the ground go sleep, sleep, sleep.
For seventeen years.

jon,
I think Neil wanted you to tell him he was a winner.
Even though it's not a drawing,,song writing and singing is an art
