THE LONELY FROG


Amidst the blissful lotus pond
Moon and water shared a bond
There, lay a frog with watery eyes;
In search of a friend from land or skies!

Days and months, he waited in vain,
His heart grew weak and brittle with pain!
"A friend would come"- hoping, he stayed;
And one spring day, his prayer got paid!

Along came a buzzing, a tiny figure in sky,
Landed beside him there, a cute dragon fly!
"Here is my friend", the little frog thought,
And went along there, for its friendship he sought!

"Stay away from me", said the dragon fly,
"For I’d soon end up being a dessert in your pie"!
"No!" said the frog, his eyes filled with tears,
"Say not such words, for in my heart they pierce"!

"Don’t cry Mr. Frog", said the fly, touched,
"For I accept your friendship, and adore it, as much"!
And so, they remained friends, true to their words,
And no more was the frog lonely, from that day onwards!

PS: My attempt at a story poem!

:-) Was this set to a nursery rhyme rhythm? :-) [I read it like that, since the story is something like what can be told to young kids which is nice and optimistic]

Or, was that a double edged post? :-)
