The Frog King (poem)

Updated on February 4, 2016

Upon his lily pad throne cross the sea

The king of all he saw now meets his day

His orders crocked for his servants to obey

This ruler of some but his destiny

-

His kindness of mind caused others dismay

A world beyond his it just couldn’t be

And tears which chanced by where a mystery

This ruler of some whose path went astray

-

The servants would hide away with their dreams

But that cursed voice now commanded the air

This ruler of some but some only dread

-

The tears of many hushed gathered in streams

But onward he croaked to fate unaware

This ruler of some but death overhead

      Thank you for sharing it. The poem, music and picture are beautiful, but which makes me feel something sad and nostalgic.

      This made me think about the times that we played with toads and frogs, and waited for the pollywogs to grow into frogs.

      This was an interesting one. Used to catch frogs when I was little to just talk to them and let them back in the pond. lol

      Thank you for this one, when I was a little girl, I had pet frogs. I know, a far cry from the puppy or kitten that most want, but I still, to this day, love frogs.
