Frog played in the water bowl splashing merrily The heat was here but he had found the perfect place to be Backstroke and the breaststroke water fountains flying free no fear of drought for he wouldn’t crisp out here in the perfect place to be Though the bowl was unattended someone should have told dear frog this bowl was no frog paddling pool but belonged to Bob the dog Now Bob was getting thirsty Frog was in for a big surprise Bob went to take a drink Bob and frog locked eyes If Bob had been a hunting dog This could’ve spelled the end But luckily for Frog All Bob saw was a new friend They hit it off near straight away And spent all summer long Laughing and sharing stories Of what went well and what went wrong This unlikeliest of friendships continued happily Here in each other’s company Bob and Frog Had found the perfect place to be
There was a frog in my dog’s water bowl on a recent trip to the Lake District, things wouldn’t have ended so well for this frog. Luckily he was found and moved to safety before my dog got thirsty.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s Sunday rhyme time. I’ve found myself needing to laugh this week and have just ordered Michael Rosen’s Book of Nonsense to aid in my hilarity. I’m kidding myself it’s to read to my son, but it’s for me really. I love silly poems and I’d like to write more of them. I’ve been feeling a bit too serious lately and that’s usually my cue to seek out some laughter and let my inner child out to play.
