A poem from my chapbook, FROG SONG. The italicized quotation is a verse from The Legend of Spirit Rock, Norman Dresser, 1879. His complete poem may be read in the booklet, Wiarton, W.G.Cheshire, 1972, at the Bruce County Public Library, Wiarton Branch, Ontario, Canada. I have heard that a similiar legend is told in other places in Canada and the USA.
