The Tale of the Toads – Prologue

March 30, 2011

Prologue

My children come and gather close,
and listen carefully
these words of wisdom of the Toads,
our fathers taught to me.

This story that I’ve memorized
and written on my skin
will serve you as a surely guide
in times of wanderings.

Let moonlight shine, illuminate
this dark and murky pool.
Let the gentle breeze, gentle waves
refresh and keep you cool

to fight the sleep that falls upon
your round, and plumply eyes.
This story’s why we sing our songs
with love, with all our lives.
