Fred The Frog

Fred The Frog short poem

I once met a frog
Whose name was Fred
He hopped around
And bounced on his bed.

He hopped to the pond
And went for a swim
He called for his friends
And they all joined in

At night he loved
To relax and knit
He wanted a scarf
That would snugly fit

Around his neck
When days are cool
It’s chilly cold
In the murky pool

A thick woolly hat
An nice warm mitts
Would make him happy
And shout RIBBIT!

You have a true way of bringing the child out of us adults.

Love Songs Of A Bull Frog  (part Two) long poem

Let us go then, you and I… Let us go then… Tired? Surprisingly, we have been saying this a hundred years. It haunts. The hallucination continues. No, it leap-frogs. Eliot was dead before I was born, before we were born.
