Read-It, Read-It, Read-It.....

Read-It, Read-It, Read-It.....

Said the good-natured mouse
who was sharing a house
which was really a log
with a goose-shit-green frog:
You keep bringing me books
about farming and chooks
it is thoughtful of you
if only you knew
that I plum don't recall
what to do with them all.
Take this book, do I need it? '
Frog answered 'read-it'.

What a cute poem! I love this type from you. sincerely, Mary
Funny! I had a good laugh!
That's cute, Herbert! I like 'goose-shit-green frog' a lot! I don't know if children's publishers would.: -) I'll have to look up 'chooks'. And I think German frogs say 'Read-it'. That makes sense. If I can find that Kermit, I'll have 'im for dinner. He's made American frogs 'ri-bet' in lockstep for 25 years!
