Frog Prince


look at the frog so small and cute
top to tail in his green suite
never dry not always wet
every child wants one for a pet

only the newt for a friend
swim in the pond from end to end
deep under water breath held tight
look at him swim such a delight
hear him call all through the night
a prince in waiting a king by right

leaping high jumping long
for his size he is so strong
from lilly pads he loves to hop
as he hits the water plip plip plop

see him catch the fly swallow swallow
with a blink of his eyes gobble gobble
look at the frog so small and cute
top to tail in his green suite

    What a BEAUTIFUL poem John. I can see the frog and his surroundings depicted so well from your words. A child would love this poem.Would you consider getting it into school books? I really LOVE it and thing it would be an instant hit with children of all ages but especially the 3 to 8 year olds. As an adult - the child in me loves it too. Thank you for sharing this lovely poem John. (Report) Reply

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
