Chorus Moment

It rained all night
And most of the day
Suddenly the sun
Decided to mysteriously
Force the clouds
Into hiding,
The deep green smell
Poured in through
My open door
And called for me
To walk the dogs
Through the newly
Freshened wetlands
There to meet us
Were the Chorus frogs
A serenade so beckoning
We were tempted to
Jump in the pond
And join them
In their sweet refrain

Cree-ee-ee-ee-eek

Rising and falling
In speed and pitch
Inviting us to enjoy
This small piece of day
And celebrate the
Smell of the
Squeaky clean earth
Washed by the rain
From the dark clouds
That so recently
Departed.
