Enchanting Legend (For Meritxell) - Poem by Charl JF Cilliers

I am the legendary enchanted frog.
But in fact I live a humble, quiet
undemanding and contented life
in what I consider an enchanting bog.

But very long ago a legend was spread
throughout the land about me
by many who do not really know
or care whether a mere frog is alive or dead.

In spite of the lack of any clear evidence,
that legend persists, with its emotive eloquence,
in suggesting that somewhere in some secluded bog
there is a princess looking for an enchanted frog
she knows can only be happy as a disenchanted prince.
