Seasons Beauty

In the land of many seasons 
A frog leaps upon his throne 
Reaching for his dew drop binoculars 
He spies at lovers by his home 

In the gleamy colors of spring 
He witnesses a prince on bended knees
With eyes so full of dreaming 
He remembers when at first they preened 

It was a hot and humid summer 
One where you feared to burn 
He remembered lovers murmurs 
That’s when things began to turn 

The pair seemed lost inside their bubble
Not noticing the tiny eyes 
Finding passion beside a dirty puddle 
A frog was their only spy 

This was how the days were spent 
When the nights grew longer
As the pair grew closer in their net
Its when the prince began to ponder

Autumn came in many colors 
The leaves became their bed
Their eyes were staring much softer 
As his fingers played with tendrils of red

The slinky green frog watched in wonder 
While the lady grew large and round
Wondering if she was becoming a mother 
Not thinking too much as he dived down 

For in the winter the frog retired
Leaving the lovers to their freeze 
For by his little fire 
The frog did not want to catch a sneeze 

So much wondering about the lovers 
And how the maiden faired 
The frog new the spring would uncover 
What the winter kept to herself

When the colors of spring started gleaming 
The snow of winter melts away 
No longer is the frog dreaming 
He searches for his favorite pair today

What he sees beyond his home 
Catches him by surprise 
For the prince is on bended knees
With a little girl at his side

As he watches the prince reach out
To a hill of fresh dirt and flowers 
He heart is breaking no doubt  
For his love had no special power 

While in his home beyond this grave
His lover took a chill 
For this is the saddest day 
On the flower covered hill
