See and Hear the Start of Spring

As the year pivots from winter to spring, crocus plants bloom and little frogs croak.  We celebrate with a photo and a tanka.  Yes, the tanka’s title and first line contain oxymorons.  They are like the phrase “song without words” in the titles of several musical compositions.

Wordless Oratorio
|Singing silent songs
|of long warm days returning,
|bee and bloom duet.
|In vernal pools near bare trees,
|spring peepers chant the chorus.
