Los &Quot;Coquis&Quot; Of Puerto Rico
"Coquis" are indigenous
by Margaret Feliciano
Tiny frogs, difficult to catch.
These adorable torments sing
A sweet melancholy song, repetitively.
Nighttime is required, patience too,
For these frogs constant "conqui!" "coqui!"
Can turn your brain sick!
For our sake, dawn arrives.
The amphibians pack their gear
And to the river, till night reappears.
