Toad's Day Out

Flip flop, hip hop,
Toad came to a dead stop
Landing in a puddle
He got into a muddle
As to where he was.

Rivet, rivet, he called out loud
Expecting to hear from the crowd,
But silence was in the air.
So with devil may care
He hopped along the path.

Flip flop, hip hop, he felt silly
And hopped onto a water lily
At the edge of the pond.
Then climbed to the top of a frond
From which to see.

Rivet, rivet, he called out loud
And this time he heard the crowd.
“We’re hiding under the lotus leaf”
“I thought you’d gone”, he cried with relief.
And toad smiled broadly.
