By the pond, in the dark,
'neath the trees, chanting

Raising voice, rhythmic song,
joining force, rejoicing

Stillness now, 'neath the trees,
silence hangs, gently

In the dark, one brave throat,
breaks the night, boldly

By the pond, vigil's choir,
chanting frogs, communing.

- David Robinson, 1995
