The Frog

By Hilaire Belloc

Be kind and tender to the Frog,

And do not call him names,

As ‘Slimy skin,’ or ‘Polly-wog,’

Or likewise ‘Ugly James,’

Or ‘Gape-a-grin,’ or ‘Toad-gone-wrong,’

Or ‘Billy Bandy-knees’:

The Frog is justly sensitive

To epithets like these.

No animal will more repay

A treatment kind and fair;

At least so lonely people say

Who keep a frog (and, by the way,

They are extremely rare).

I tend to avoid beautiful, colourful spiders as much as i can. If they are not beautiful or just plain grey or black I avoid them too. I run away so fast from them I have neve thought of taking a picture...

I have an affinity with frogs - one visited my garden a few years ago and sat in the same spot every night a 10.00 pm - we used to meet and simply look at each other - very peaceful and intriguing!

Like #1 Best.

Cheers,

Andrew
