frog call (ba bonk)

I
was once a frog
you know

home
upon a lily

it seems a foolish time
so far ago
but all of us
were young
then

a croak
is like a call
to love
sent by one
melancholy

a croak is just
a song to sing
on wistful nights
of ripples
on the pond

and I still send
my song of love
though I’m no longer
on the lily

I call out my heart
once so alone
but now
I call to …

we are all just
once-were-frogs
crying on our lilies

sending songs pa-donk
pa-donk
just hoping for
an echoed bonk-ba-bonk
to give the hope
of love
