I spotted a frog in a tree.
At the same time, she spotted me.
“This is awkward to find you up there.”
The frog rolled her eyes,”I don’t care.”
“I got here while chasing a bug.”
“So did I.” she said. ( sounding smug)
“To me, bugs are so cool!”
Frog then hissed,” You’re a real fool!”
“Sorry” I said.”Didn’t mean to be rude.”
She went on, “Bugs are just food!”
From the looks of it she had a date
She had set up a glass and a plate.
“Can’t imagine you sharing a meal.
You haven’t one single pinch of appeal.”
THEN she flipped two mean birds my way.
I almost left… but decided to stay.
She had one BIG bug up inside her glass.
The best that I could do was let it pass.

Obviously adults would enjoy this as they read it to their little ones; you remind me of Shel Silverstein -a favorite of my grandchildren. I’ve seen and enjoyed your drawings and would like to see you illustrate your poems.
I am humbled by the comparison to Silverstein…the illustrations are in my future too!
