Toadsong in February

By John I. Blair

Last night in this
Warm and humid February
I stepped out of my car

And heard toads singing
Softly, softly,
In the urban dark.

At first I thought
Myself mistaken;
Toads donít sing in February.

But there they were,
Primordial eructations
That have been a part of life

For eons on this planet
We call Earth
And love with all our heart.
