Frogs Trilling

'If we can discover the meaning in the trilling of a frog, perhaps we may understand why it is for us not merely noise but a song of poetry and emotion.'- Adrian Forsyth

If you've ever walked through a wetland you will know the trill of a frog. But did you know these multi-lingual creatures offer poetry no matter where you travel?

cra-cra (Italian)
ribbit (English)
vrak (Turkish)
kwaak (German)
kum-kum (Polish)
op op (Thai)
brekeke (Hungarian)
kerokero (Japanese)

Next time you hear them, make sure you sing along.
