THE PEEPERS HAVE RETURNED!!!!

THE PEEPERS HAVE RETURNED!

(Tune: “Oh Jerusalem!”)

Last night as I was walking

Around the fact’ry grounds,

I came around a building to hear glorious sounds….

I came around a building there to hear glorious sounds!

The peeper frogs,

The peeper frogs,

Cheeping for all their worth:

In Springtime they are most welcome,

Sure signs of a warming earth,

In Springtime they are most welcome…

Sure signs of Springtime birth!

A thought then occurred to me–

It was an instant thing—

Not gradually but all at once

The frogs began to sing…

Not gradually but all at once

Our frogs began to sing!

Our peeper frogs,

Our peeper frogs

Singing for all their worth…

Their arrival is very welcome,

Mating calls of great mirth…

Their outbursts signal Springtime,

Is breaking out on the Earth!!!!

–Jonathan Caswell
