Ode to a Toad

On the edge of some water weeds,
Below a pillowed moon.
Sits a toad on a lily pad,
Croaking, a lonely croon.

Exuberant he spends the hours,
Through the flower of night,
He bloats and croaks his melody,
With overripe delight.

He calls out to the ladies fair,
To hear his raucous tune.
To lure her close and into mate.
Below a pillowed moon.

He sings rebeep in constant sweep,
Calling passionately.
He cannot stop or stay a note,
Here lies his destiny.

He croaks it from the diaphragm,
Over and over, here I am.

Wart's it all about, Seymour?
Do we just call for mates until we croak?
Is our only goal to be a tadpole's dad?
Have I lost my mind at last?

Going to bed now. 'Night, Sy. Good poem!
