The symphony of Life

Updated on February 28, 2017


The bullfrog drums in its melodious beat, as in a nightime serenade,

The rain frogs join in to share the sounds, about the glen and glade.

Rhythmic crickets and birds exchange chit-chats, a musical cascade,

Wild racoons chatter, beavers kerflop, ending a fine refrain's parade.


The notes of a lonesome loon, an egret's cries, hoot owls all soon join in,

One disgruntled goose, on the loose, quacking ducks flutter, about then.

A slithering snake creates a wake, turtles bob, as a fish swirls in disarray,

Our cacophony of swamp critters, galore, upon every listening ear, to play.



This haphazard presentation, deserves an ovation, staccato verses in tow,

Each precious creation, in its own habitation, there in its sanctuary to know.

A visitor's fond delight, in the middle of the night, on memories all to bestow,

Ever welcoming, its music, a symphony of sounds, within our hearts to grow.


The simple things in life matter so much...
The simple things in life matter so much...

      Wow. I am missing so many of these sounds in todays urbanized world. I just remembered my trek in western ghats of india few years back.

      Had a great wild time in the night camp. I do miss the frogs, which were in abundance while growing up. I feel after reading your poem, the world is slowly loosing the pleasent noises of the nature, that really matter.
