Ribbiting Poem and Frog Verse

The Frog

by Robert Frost

Be kind and tender to the Frog,
And do not call him names,
As "Slimy skin," or "Polly-wog,"
Or likewise "Ugly James,"
Or "Gap-a-grin," or "Toad-gone-wrong,"
Or "Bill Bandy-knees":
The Frog is justly sensitive
To epithets like these.

No animal will more repay
A treatment kind and fair;
At least so lonely people say
Who keep a frog (and, by the way,
They are extremely rare).

My "Woodland Friends" are

hoppers true;

Bringing to me

a smile or two . . .

Their "Green Eyes"  

peer up at me; 

some from pond, meadow,

or tree . . .

"Hang in There" and

you will find,

froggy creatures are 

extremely kind . . .

Look closely

'neath every leaf; 

for "Hiding in Plain Sight" 

you may find

a frog family . . .

A handsome fellow

upon a lily pad is fond;

of being

"Afloat on a Pond" . . .

"Just Chillin'" is what

I love to do;

like happy red frogs,

me and you . . .

"Leap Frogs" is quite a 


colorful hoppers are

really keen . . .

"A Tad Bit of Green"

frog smiles from

ear to ear;

this frog has

nary a care . . .

A "Froggy's Dinner" is

yummy to him;

he'll soon be filled

to the brim.

Hope my froggy friends brought some joy to your heart,

I know Pat smiled as she created this happy art!
