Day 538 Spadefoot

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Today’s Daily Create is what an Amazon Echo might look like in something around your house– and I spotted this ceramic toad I made in the 70s. Funny, the silly things we used to create, but I do like toads– I think they are fascinating.

So I looked up the kind of toads we might find in our area and I discovered the Great Basic spadefoot toad is the most prominent in our dry area and wrote a poem about its characteristics. For a look at a real one:

Spadefoot

Rotund bug eater, 

hind toe a spade, rock disguise, 

hiding in the grass, 

unseen, we wander right by 

this small ground burrowing toad
