on my desk

there is a frog

a poor relation of Mr. Jeremy Fisher

whose name, so far as I can make out,

is William
He's quite content to sit where he is
and has told me he has no desire whatsoever
to do any hopping about in the garden
Which is rather rather convenient for both of us
as I find a sweet comfort in his company
and he is a fairly sedentary fellow 

no amount of kissing will bring it out of him

I don't know if that means he is not a prince

or I am not a princess

but  neither one of us can bear the disappointment of discovery so.....
we are happy to leave things lie

as they are


  1. You have such a way with words!

  2. Such sweet words...and lovely light. Very magical!

  3. Aw, thanks for introducing us to William :)

  4. Princes are overrated, a frog has personality.

  5. I think I would like a frog on my desk!

    Thanks for sharing at SYC.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
