The Frog Needs A Kiss

If only I could get just one kiss

A kiss that will set my eternal bliss

That evil witch with a pointed nose

I hope to inferno her body goes


She made me a four legged creature

A creature with no defined feature

A two legged Man I once stood

If only I had hands to wrap around I would


No one will ever want to pucker their lips

What am I to do given till tomorrows eclipse

I sit below the stars and call out to them

Please send me a lady a pretty lil’ femme


Out by the pond in a pretty flower garden

A sweet lil’ voice says “Excuse me, pardon?”

I turn to look and to my surprise

A set of big black beautiful dreamy eyes


I tell her I know my image a bit light green

Nothing like you ever have seen

I beg you to land just one peck

A promise to make a lady of Quebec


“Oh sure thing little green frog,

Did that witch from the city called Prague

Turn you into this jumping amphibian

I will do as you ask call me Gillian


She leaned in to place her lips on mine

Her face so gracious her big eyes just shine

Into a whirl I turned and turned

Onto two legs my body returned


A man I stood right before her eyes

Backwards she stepped and a mode so shy

May I return the favor Ms. Gillian I ask?

Thank you for helping with this froggy task

Thank you J. I was told something about my pictures that I should smile or not pucker my lips all the time and my answer was "I do that because I have not found my prince charming or my frog but I will wait for the day either or lands a kiss on my lips until then I will wear a pukered lips and not smile."

smiles :)

This is so good, I could picture the frog and the princess. I also could imagine him 'thanking' her for the kiss...lol

A timeless story told your way hunnie. I can tell you that I would rather kiss a frog any day than a Prince. May not be human but can't cause any real pain either.
