Two Little Frogs (part 1). short poem

Uploaded by Marie

Just after brunch
two little frogs climbed up a tree
onto a leafless branch
to view what they could see

They saw the sky in azure blue
Clouds dotted here and there
They saw the river running
though they didn’t know to where

They heard the sparrows chirping
while Mummy fed them in their nest
and saw Mrs. Jones at her clothesline
as she hung up her vest

They saw the little dog below
who ran around and played
and the cat upon the garage roof
whose presence his bell betrayed

They saw so many wonders
as they sat upon the tree
They wanted to stay forever
but… They got hungry

so, they came down and had their tea
Ate so much they could not leap
so they cuddled up together beneath the tree
where they both fell fast asleep

A nice little story about two frogs enjoying their day. I believe with food filled in their belly and unable to move, they did not themselves become food for the dogs and cats prowling around.
