The frog

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country Notebook -

Round-eyed, pal­pi­tat­ing frog, With your wide mouth all agog To en­gulph the pass­ing fly, All your twenty toes stuck out, Im­mov­able as any lout, Who’s the dreamer, You, or I? You, they say in books of old, In your livery of gold, Gay and debonair and spry, Wooed princesses—kissed the hand Of the fairest in the land. Now you gaze with gog­gled eye. Who’s the dreamer, You, or I?; —Anne F. Brown
