The Chorus of Frogs


(By Aunt Effie: Jane Euphemia Saxby, 1860)

“Yaup, yaup, yaup!”
Said the croaking voice of a Frog:
“A rainy day
In the month of May,
And plenty of room in the bog.”

“Yaup, yaup, yaup!”
Said the Frog as it hopped away:
“The insects feed
On the floating weed,
And I’m hungry for dinner today.”

“Yaup, yaup, yaup!”
Said the Frog, as it splashed about:
“Good neighbours all,
When you hear me call,
It is odd that you do not come out.”

“Yaup, yaup, yaup!”
Said the Frogs, “It is charming weather;
We’ll come and sup,
When the moon is up,
And we’ll all of us croak together.”
