When The Frogs Are Singing - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though the night is calm and quite dry it does look like it will rain
For the tiny frogs are singing in every pond and drain
Though in their breeding Season of August of the year
When they are at their most vocal you know that rain is near
They breed in the rainy time of year from late Winter to mid Spring
In every pond and every drain one often hear them sing
And when they sing their loudest you know it soon will rain
How they sense a change in weather beyond me to explain
They often sing at nighttime and sometimes during the day
But they are quite elusive they hide themselves away
Even when they are singing they are almost impossible to see
These tiny brown amphibians are as elusive as can be
Though the night is calm and quite dry you know that it will rain
When the tiny frogs are singing in every pond and drain.
