Poem by a Frog

Muggy water, gooey mud

Lily pads with bright pink buds

A fish, a fly, a heron

Swarming swirling swamp, a heaven.

Rain! A great grey day.

No day as great as a grey rain day.

Hark! A slithering snicker

A dusty musty muddy buddy

A flame, a fork, a flicker

Snake, drake of the lake!

Silly snake, sneering snarky smirks

Stretching from eye to eye.

Slurp! Into the lake, snake, goodbye!

Muggy water, gooey mud

Lily pads with bright pink buds
