Frog #TheWritersCollection

Little green frog never bothered anyone
Resting on the side of the house to avoid the midday sun
My children spotted you and squealed in delight
They must have given you quite a fright
Jumping from child to child, you tried to get away
But the tiny hands grabbed you, persistent to play
I warned them to let you go, your capture was unfair
And what do you know, you wound up hiding in my daughter’s hair
Snapping a picture was the only way
To ensure we never forget that day.

    1. Abby didn't want the frog to go away. I have a picture of a butterfly on her head. She's like Snow White. All the creatures are drawn to her. ;-)

  6. Adorable. Frogs are never safe around this place. And they come here to breed in our pond so we get more than our fair share. Lovely.
