The princess and the frog

The princess and the frog

Junior mister froggy
Was mommy’s pet
Mommy called him
“My darling prince.”
When he crooned
His froggy melodies
Mommy was always there
To applaud and cheer him.

With time he grew up
Became a big frog
Still he was mommy’s
Darling, her pet.
He went out for adventure
To slay dragons
To conquer lands
To win a princess for himself.

Soon he saw a princess
Playing by her fountain
He went up to her
“Kiss me, I am a prince.”
The princess saw a frog
Heard him going “Ribbit”
She ran away screaming
“Mommy mommy come quick!”

Our prince was undaunted
He followed her to her palace
Soon he found her out
Sitting in her room
He clambered up to the windowsill
“Kiss me now! Quick!”
The princess pushed him out, he hollered
“I will be back!”

A pretty princess
Pretty as a picture.

Melodious as a lark
Fragrant as a rose

Won the fancy of a toad.

The toad asked for a kiss
The princess obliged.

He turned into a prince
They lived happily ever-after.

That’s what the story says.

What if he dint changed?
It has not been a fairytale.

A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me, or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- And if you want fb you can go to my page, linkedin- my email id and I am in goodreads and completelynovel too I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)

  1. I remember this fairytale, The Frog Prince right?

    One obeyed while the other didn’t. It’s who we are that help us in our choices that we make.

    And what if he didn’t change, well a) She would be displeases because she probably hoped that he would’ve turned into a prince, or b) She wouldn’t have mind because she wasn’t expecting anything. Fairy tales are just that, fairy tales.

    Enjoy your weekend. My regards To Mr. Pixie and friends. 🙂

  2. kissing a slimy toad expecting him to become prince ….. 🙂

    i would not have done it. even if it spoke in human tongue. yuck!

    then, those who dare win!

    1. You are funny Golden Lotus of God’s Love….if the toad even talked you can never know…it might have been a ventriloquist doing this…hehehe…enjoy as well(+) 🙂

    2. Ventriloquist. Must be one with too much time on his hands.

      But I guess that’s what fairy tales are made up of, things that people will not normally do. Love has a strange way of being reveal.
