A Rose for my Froggy
by Miss Abagail Mannering
4/12/2000

Petals soft as velveteen,
color, rich- red as wine.
Stem and leaves and emerald green-
thorns that prick one's pride.

Sweet tear drops
fall on budding crowns,
then trickle slowly
to SPLAT on the ground.

Love is the meaning
of a beautiful rose...
which I try to express
in the lines I compose....

For, I've found my Prince
after all the POND SCUM...
it is you, my Froggy...
it is you that I love.

Dedicated to my beau for our 7th month. anniversary comin' up on the 18th. part of this poem is a snippet from an old poem written for an old love. I always loved one particular snippet from that old poem..and have been tryin' to come up with new verses for it for 3 years...I finally did it!


 "Ya have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince... just watch out for all the pond scum!!!"

Miss Abagail - this is a very nice poem, and you have a cute pout.  Thanks for sharing both!

A rose is a rose is a frog --)
Your clever start of this poem was very
picturesque. The ending was a bit of a
suprise.  Good luck with froggie --)

And, yes, sometimes, you do have to wade
through frogs until you get the prince.

Keep up the writing --)
