Francois la Grenouille Jolly

Tailless frog of a pond
bark and croak the happy hour
prince of fens and cheery chants
kiss of maids and misty pants.
Eyes a goggle left and right
What is for his tea tonight?
Toothless sage of swampy song
rubber nose and web toes on;
Wing of fly and meal of gnat
in the creek François is sat.
Notre jolly grenouille.

    why do men have a thing about bull frogs. to a guy, a girl might think you find them as lovely as a flower. This is a cute poem though. Enjoyed. Hugs, catie :)

    Sorry - I do agree with Keith, Mike. I agree with you also when you call the frog the Prince of the Fens. He certainly is.
