it really happened last night

It happened at midnight

by the light of the silvery full moon

He sat in the middle of the kitchen

Right there on the floor

I picked him up too soon

Carried him out of the door

It felt right

To release him on a nearby lawn

Only much later

did it dawn:

I had a chance and didn't seize it

I could have kissed a Prince

Instead I got rid of him

sent him on his troubled road

He was that one in a million

a large and ugly toad

You tell it so well, Gina! The strange thing is that after reading your poem I came across a photo of my granddaughter on Face Book holding a frog. I added a caption ... a frog or a prince? and thought of you! Hugs, Li

I believe it, Gina, and love it. How often does one get to write
a tale like this? And you do it so well. Interesting rhymes.
