1. The Frog Who Learned His Lesson

The Frog Who Learned His Lesson

Once upon a day, By the pond in May

Lay a Frog as green as can be, Underneath the big oak tree.

He closes his eyes and drifts to sleep, Dreaming of dreams he wish he could keep.

But along comes Terry Toad, Leaping along the bank side road,

A smile on his face and a skip in his step, He wakes up the frog from his peaceful nap.

"Come and swim, as the water's fine!" Says Terry Toad, wanting to pass time.

"Go away and leave me to dream, I may be a frog, but I'm not what I seem.

"Suit yourself, you miserable frog, But if you want, I'll be near by the log."

So the frog goes back to sleep, Dreaming of dreams he wish he could keep.

But along comes Freya Fox, Padding over the sun-heated rocks.

"Come and hunt, for the forest is alive!" Says Freya Fox, at half past five.

"Go away and leave me to dream, I may be a frog but I'm not what I seem."

"Fine by me, because you're just no fun, But when you change your mind, I'll probably be done."

So the frog goes back to sleep, Dreaming of dreams he wish he could keep.

But along comes Simon Snake, Slithering all the way from the lake.

"Let's go sit by that puddle, for you look in need of a cuddle."

"Go away and leave me to dream, I may be a frog but I'm not what I seem."

Simon sniffs but makes no sound, As he slides away from the frog with a yawn that is loud.

So the frog goes back to sleep, Dreaming of dreams he wish he could keep.

But look! Along come all his friends! Terry Toad, Freya Fox, Simon Snake and a many more that have no end!

The frog jumps up quick, Following the crowd.

The jumping, padding, slithering bunch he let down.

As much as he jumped,

As much as he leaped,

He could not catch up with the joyful heap.

"Wait for me, wait for me! I can't run so fast, can't you see?"

"But I thought you didn't want to come swimming?" says Terry Toad, still leaping along the bank side road.

"But I want to come now, wait for me! My legs are running as fast as can be!"

"But I thought you didn't want to come hunting?" says Freya Fox, still padding across the sun-heated rocks.

"Hunting sounds fun I'm sure! Let me come along, don't be immature!"

"But I thought you didn't want to sit by the puddle?" says Simon Snake, slithering to the lake.

"Of course I want a cuddle, But when I dream I'm in such a muddle!"

"We can't stop, we have somewhere to be, Where there are no frogs allowed, you'll see!"

Then the frog stopped short, Realising the lesson his friends had taught.

"A miserable frog I have been, But I'm ever so sorry, will you forgive me?"

So they all stepped forward and said with a grin:

"Of course, my friend. But you see, we always win.
