The Frog Pool


Week after week it shrank and shrank
as the fierce drought fiend drank and drank,
till on the bone-dry bed revealed

    The Frog Pool

    in the spring
    The pollywogs swim
    Hatched by the millions
    From eggs laid bare
    Now they join others
    In the watery lair.

    A fish like creature
    With bulging head
    A body and a flick of a tail
    Growing boldly
    As they swim about
    Mindless of the future
    And the coming rout.

    Suddenly tiny legs appear
    A pair up front and others a rear
    Vestiges of things to come
    As they swim freely
    No thought of what's to come.

    Then one day
    As the fat tail shrinks away
    They venture forth
    Onto terrestrial firma
    And are there to stay.

    They've metamorphosed
    To something new,
    A creature know to others
    Who come to view.

    A frog
