Princess and the Frog by Robert E Hann

Once upon so long ago
There was a princess who would go
out walking 'neath the sky above
and dream of finding her true love.

A thing of beauty, skin so fair
angelic smile, with golden hair.
The blush of roses on her cheeks
the sound of music when she speaks.

Many a man had tried to win her.
Knights and princes over dinner
Swearing their love and devotion
Princess showing no emotion.

One fine day Princess did take
a walk down by the palace lake
and there upon a fallen log
she spied a most handsome bull frog.

He had a twinkle in his eye
and Princess couldn't figure why
this frog could make her knees feel weak
when suddenly the frog did speak.

"H'lo M'lady," he did say
"What brings you passing by this day?"
Princess replied, "I'm on a walk"
"I didn't know that frogs could talk!".

"A frog I have not always been.
I was born- like other men.
But I pissed off this cronous witch,
she cast a spell on me, the bitch!".

"So now I spend time eating flies
stuck here in this frog disguise
cursed to live here lovelessly
unless a princess kisses me."

"I am a princess," Princess cried,
"But kiss a frog?... don't think I'd
ever quite come to grips
with having warts upon my lips.".

"Hey, that old warts thing it's not true,
an old wives tale I promise you.
If you will kiss me we will be
in love throughout eternity."

"All time together we will spend
our happiness will never end.
Just grab me with your fingertips
and kiss me here upon the lips."

'Twas love that Princess did most crave
so at the moment feeling brave
she thought to do as frog had asked
and see how Froggie looked unmasked.

Hoping Froggie didn't lie..
she saw that twinkle in his eye.
"I can't believe I'm doing this"
as Princess knelt the frog to kiss.

So moving closer she did race.
A smile upon the bullfrog's face.
A puff of smoke as their lips met.
And then two frogs together set.

Before you laugh or even cry
and think this tale has gone awry
or think its ending out of place
just see the smile on Princess' face.

With the grace from up above
Princess had found her one true love.
For she was happy as a frog
with her mate there on the log.

There is a moral to this rhyme.
A simple message old as time.
Though you may think a frog’s life crappy,
........ you just never know what  makes other folks happy!

thank you Lynn! You are so kind!
I liked the twist in the poem too!
Did you read my comment to Lee?
The photo of the frog was taken with a macro lens and was so GROTESQUE that I was inspired to manipulate it and cover it's gory details with the wet window.
It was kind of fun, but now I found a way to share it!
How did you like his lips? Did they look kissable?

Lee-
This photo was taken so close up it was GROTESQUE! 
I liked the photo, he was actually sitting on a large toadstool, but it was too graphic. I rarely use photoshop but this photo inspired me to add the lips and lay the rainy window over it to cover the harsh details.
I'm glad you like it, and appreciate you stopping by and browsing and taking time to comment.
I thought that fella's poem was a cute twist to a well known story.
