55-A Frog Is A Frog



A frog is a frog,

A toad is a toad,

A frog loves a log,

A toad crawls on a road.

When a toad wants to be a frog,

He is daydreaming.

When a toad is disguised as a frog,

He is self-insulting.

Be yourself,

Don’t lie!

Respect others,

Stop stirring up a fire.

Hop, skip and a jump
The frog sees the hump
He pops over to the lily pad
Big smile on his face as he is so glad
Staring and gazing watching in his eyes
Out lashes his tongue, hey he has a fly

enjoy always Jingle and Happy Thursday to ya(+)

Wow! I especially love the lines, "When a toad wants to be a frog,
He is daydreaming.
When a toad is disguised as a frog,
He is self-insulting."...your poetry is light and yet, at the same time profound! ~Janine XO

Dear Jingle, I would like to thank you for your interest in my blog and all your fantastic comments. It is easy to lose heart when one is attempting to create poetry, and support such as yours goes a long way to keeping the spirit alive. Even a frog in a bog needs a circle of fireflies to sing to!

MorningAJ said...

Timely reminder. Be yourself. Good advice.

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

I wrote a haiku about a toad once, but I'm too lazy to search for it.

He's saying "I'm glad to be me, even if I do have three toes on one foot and four on the other." :)

Thanks for doing Friday 55! :)

Mine's been posted here since last night, but it's taken me this long to visit and leave comments. Sorry about that.

this is quite amusing and entertaining, jingle!

Jerry said...

Thanks for all your encouraging comments on my site. My kids collect frogs all summer long...and an occasional toad too.
They know the difference and would smell out a frog impersonator with one nostril. blessings!

Lourie said...

hahahha! I love it! I have to share this one with my mom. She collects frogs due to a long running joke.
