Apple For A Prince - Poem by Alan Draper

Nice apples can be red and often green
and sometimes something in between
Frogs are nearly always green
Soon you'll see what I mean

I took a bite and now the worse
as this apple had a curse
Im now a frog with little chance
of finding my desired romance

Sunlight came and sunlight go
Poor frog doesnt know
To lift the curse he needs a kiss
Can a princess take a risk

Ill try and reach her from the ground
Maybe she'll hear my croaking sound
Please be kind to frogs you see
As the one you spot may be me
