Can someone explain to me in detail what does the poem "On the Grasshopper & the Cricket" by John Keats mean?

On the Grasshopper and the Cricket by John Keats The poetry of the earth is never dead; When all the birds are faint with the hot sun, And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead; That is the grasshopper's - he takes the lead In summer luxury - he has never... show more On the Grasshopper and the Cricket by John Keats

The poetry of the earth is never dead;
When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,
And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run
From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead;
That is the grasshopper's - he takes the lead
In summer luxury - he has never done
With his delights; for when tired out with fun
He rest at ease beneath some pleasant weed.
The poetry of earth is ceasing never;
On a lone winter evening, when the frost
Has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrills
The cricket's song, in warmth increasing ever
And seems to one in drowsiness half lost,
The grasshopper's among some grassy hills.
