Ten Little Frogs (Rhyming Couplets)


Ten little frogs were not feeling fine
One went to the hospital and then there were Nine

Nine little frogs went out to play
One got hit by a ball and then there were Eight

Eight little frogs were named Stephen
One died by a 'Silver Bullet' and then there were Seven

Six little frogs went for a dive
One stayed at the bottom and then there were Five

Five little frogs were on the floor
One got stepped on it and then there were Four

Four little frogs sailed to the sea
One disappeared and then there were Three

Three little frogs were wearing shoes
One walked away and then there were Two

Two little frogs were having fun
One died laughing and then there was One

One little frog was basking in the sun
That one forgot the suntan lotion and now there are None!

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
