Frogs at School
by G. Cooper
Twenty froggies went to school, |
Down beside a rushy pool:
"We must be in time." they say.
"First we learn, and then we play.
That is how we keep the rule,
When froggies go to school."
Master Bull-frog, grave and stern,|
Called the classes each in turn:
Taught them how to learn and strive,
Showed them how to leap and dive.
From his seat, upon a log,|
He taught them how to say, "Ker-shog!"
Also, how to dodge a blow
From the stones, that bad boys throw.
Twenty froggies grew up fast:|
Big frogs they became at last:
Now they sit on other logs
Teaching other little frogs.
