Poem: Oh frogs, where do you go?

2013-06-02 Looking for frogs (3)

As I fell asleep last night

I heard your song


You and your friends

A thousand voices strong


I woke up a bit later

You sang all night long


So, this afternoon I hopped on my bike

I wanted to say hello

But I couldn’t find you

Where do you go?

Do you bury yourself in the mud

So deep?

Do you hide in the ditches

And fall asleep?

I guess if I want to be with you

I should sleep now too

Then get up at dusk

And sing with your crew

About the poem:

Oh man, it feels great to fall asleep to the sound of frogs ‘singing’. As a kid in the US, I learned that frogs say “ribbit”, but here in Korea they are reported to say “gae-gool”. I tried to spot them today, but I couldn’t see one! (These two birds were also trying to spot them but failed too!) Back at home later, as dusk fell, I heard the frog chorus again! So sweet. Ahhhh. A great way to fall asleep in my town of Samcheonpo, South Korea.
