Frog Poems

Frog poems for those who have the appreciation for this amphibian. Since non-cartoon frogs have never really been given a great deal of attention, poems on frogs talk about the characteristics and good qualities of this amphibian. Symbolic meaning of the frog deals with creativity, fertility, luck, cleansing, intuition, transformation and forward thinking. Frogs feature prominently in folklore, nursery rhymes and fairy tales in many cultures. Frog’s croaking and leaping often are the sources of inspiration for the frog poetry. This collection of froggy poems is interestingly full of different expressions of the poets. Some poems are the glorifying tales of frog being the prince, while others find frog like features interesting enough to fit in the verses.
