Netherland, My Home-Land.... Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

Netherland, My Home-Land....

Rating: 5.0


Netherland, My Home-Land….

when i go up the rocky hills

i don't getanymore those thrills

like in my premier time in the Netherlands

i've seen so many frogs in this waterland

i was silenced, surprised and shocked
all my memories blocked

but
when i see so many uncountable frogs right now,
i don't feel silenced anymore,neither surprised nor shocked,
i am surprised that i have gotten used to the uncountable frogs

innumerable?
these frogs?
i discovered delicious dishes,
the name on the list:
fried frog woks

when i go up now the rocky hills,

i do get these fashion thrills

delightful dishes of delicate
fried frog woks

poor dutch farmers, now no frogs
anymore
even in their socks....

A beautiful and unique write. I can relate to this poem about frogs. Frogs when cooked are delicious and nutritious. One of the most common dishes is fried frog. Others are those being dipped in egg batter, breadcrumbed and then fried or in soups or stews.
