FROG ODE

ORIGINAL VERSE.
To a Frog.
(By W.O.S.)
Little green and gold frog.
Seldom seen and cold’frog,
Watching me so wisely . neath the leafy
dome above;
Gallant little fellow,
With your eyes of yellow.
Tell me, little creature have you ever
been in love?
Little glad arid gold frog.
Sometimes’gay and bold frog.
Watching ‘tadpoles swimming’-in the
limpid depths below
Happy hours aré sweetest,
Golden days are fleetest,
Love and youth are over and old
Father Time a foe.
Little worn and old frog,
Often tir’d and cold frog.
Misty twilight beckons-it is time to
creep away;
All Life’s lessons learning.
Loving, mating, yearning.
Sleep and rest serenely in your narrow
bed of clay.
