The Hapless Toad - Poem by Clive Culverhouse

the hapless toad
who croaked a verse
and moved the trees around him

did sway the branches
sway the leaves
at the most profound of meaning

and too did cry
the birds above
at so beautiful a stanza

and soon to history
rose the toad
recited oft' thereafter

    ill-fated
    the hope
    for the happiness
    in this life in time;
    at the end
    on the tattered leaf of history! /// profound expression
