So I have been trying to recall the name of a poem for several years now so that I can find it, hopefully someone will have an idea. I read it in a book of childrens poems, it was about a girl in a pond who was guarded by frogs with spears and fish. All the creatures thought she was asleep but she was dead. There were parts about reeds in her hair or something of the like. In the book there was a picture of a girl in the water in a white dress with the fore mentioned frogs. It is an older poem, I know its a long shot but if anyone has any idea what poem it may be I would be very grateful. Thanks.
