Can you hear them?!
My croaking minstrels of the pond & stream
have begun their twilight concert

Look at the picture above,
look down one of the roads of my beloved farm
close your eyes and imagine you are here with me
on the long porch, rocking gently in a tired
but lovingly repainted chair

Feel the cool glass, ice quietly melting, in your hand
Breathe deeply as the gentle nearly-night-breeze moves by us
Smile, as one by one the water minstrels
Sing their magical melodies
To you
To me
To each other
To anyone who pauses to listen

the world is calm
Sometimes life

Oh that IS magical!!! I love, love, LOVE my amphibian musicals! We have a pool and a small pond, and a creek "down below," so they are in their glory here in Nod....It is not spring without their song.....Smiles & Froggy Songs ~ Robin (Is that a stone fence edging the road??? still my heart!) :o
