I stare into the garden pond, wondering
On the theory of evolution
And how it applies to frogs

    I think they formed the habit before motor vehicles were invented.
    Perhaps the pond doesn't provide enough food for the adult frogs.
    Nice, interesting poem. (Report) Reply

    I love the whimsical, light tone of this poem, which asks one of the most serious of questions. (Report) Reply

    excellent poem Paula. The question why do they leave their pond, why do we leave our pond sometimes. ? thinking about that (Report) Reply

    Paula,
    You missed the point - - -
    It is little boys like me,
    that grabbed them out of that security! (Report) Reply

    Thought provoking stuff Paula. I like this. We changed their world beyond all recognition by creating cars and roads and all the rest of it, and they'll adapt, or no more frogs in ponds - brutal isn't it! Survival of the 'fittest'. This poem will make it though, without any adaptations. It's very good work. jim (Report) Reply

    I used to cycle home from work, through a park, and past a pond where frogs would venture onto the path, and in the cool, darkness of the evening, would wonder exactly the same thing! It was hell dodging these little creatures. But I promise I never squashed one!

    Sweet little poem, Paula.

    Love, Fran xx (Report) Reply
