The Frog Rides the Tortoise
Have you seen the frog with the polka dotted umbrella?
I do not believe I have, I told the tortoise. Is it very wide?
He is apparently a dapper well-dressed, greenish fella.
And he has a pheasant feathered hat that you can’t hide.
I wish I could help you I told my friend, but I have not.
I could not imagine it I told my cousin Louise May Pat.
I saw him a few hours later, and he was doing a trot.
The frog on his back was dapper and fit, with a marvelous hat.
There they go now Pat said. Just look at that!
I thought they made a splendid team for sure.
You could not miss that darling pheasant hat.
Or the tortoise who walked so true and pure.
