The Frog Princess

By Judith Westerfield

The Prince sighed
and the froggie replied
,

“Perfect you’re not
YOU are lacking a lot Can’t even fly
on your own in the sky. You’re not very fair
for a prince with no hair And It may be moot
But you’re short to boot.”

The Prince sighed as he replied,

“You’re right I fear
I’ve looked far and near
no matter if tall, or very small Whether blue, red or green Tall, wide or lean
Please stop my flight. Perhaps all are just right.
For a prince who’s uptight”

And lo the skies shook, right by the book,
A sight to behold Breaking the mold comes a princess so fair it’s hard not to stare. Shimmering green

A wondrous scene
A crown of red perched on her head.

Hard to grasp
The Prince gasped,

“From out of the blue? Too good to be true! No matter if tall
No matter at all!

No matter if green You are my queen!!”

The Prince cried!
And the princess replied,

“Well! It’s taken awhile,”

she said with a smile. And drops the prince, with nary a wince,
face first in the mud with a resounding THUD

The Prince spun his head

as the Princess said,

“Now know! When you take flight morning, noon or night”,

She said with great mirth,

“I promise to bring you . . . back to earth”

And this is how out of the blue. . .

wishes come true . . .

“Hop on my back,
I’ll cut you some slack But don’t talkback.
I want no flack.”

So off they go
the Prince in tow hanging on for dear life looking for a wife.

“What a wondrous sight From this vantage of flight” “Still, all I can see
None suited for me
Many too greedy
Most too needy
Some too tall,
or much too small

None, not one, right at all”

Not one maiden fit

“I’m ready to quit,”

the Prince sighed, as froggie replied

“You needn’t fear
Your bride will appear.
Your wish will take wing
IF you say the RIGHT thing.”

“Acbracadabra!”

cried the Prince
Making the flying frog wince

“Let there be light!”

Shouting with might

“No! No! that’s not right!

“Bippity, Boppity, Boo? 1,2,3 Buckle my shoe?”

“Open sesame
Bring a bride to me!”

“Ok, let me focus . . . Hocus pocus?”

“Free! no charge!

Small, medium or large?”

“I give up, let me go

much too taxing, you know I’ve spent my life
Looking for a wife
On land, in the sea Someone perfect for me. Now in the air.

It’s just not fair None fit to a tee None suited for me”

“Many too greedy
Most too needy
Some too tall,
or much too small
None, not one, right at all. It’s an eye-opening site From this vantage of flight
A perfect bride doesn’t exist Once again, I’ve missed,”

The Prince spied a spider who was an outsider.

“Spin me some webs
to attach to my legs They’ll catch the breeze when I bend my knees!”

the Prince cried.
And the spider replied

“I’ll spin if you will foot the bill.


Take my web if you please To catch a breeze
Wind ‘round your knees attach to your tie

flap your legs to fly take to the sky.”

“Help! I’m dropping like lead catching flies. . . . Instead!!”

the prince cried
as the spider replied


.

“Have you lost your mind My webs are fine! Guaranteed not to tear No matter where”

You’re no flyer I fear just a prince, my dear It’s just not your thing To take to wing

Stop sticking around Stay on the ground.”


The prince wasn’t mad Just terribly sad
Sitting down to mope
He felt like a dope.
When lo! High up in the sky a frog flying, No LIE!

Breaking the mold
With wings of gold
A froggie swoops down wearing a crown.
A crown of red
perched on her head
The prince rubbed his eyes Looking up to the skies
An impossible sight
In a golden light.

“I can’t believe my eyes. From out of the skies
I see a frog flying without even trying!”

the Prince cried
and the froggie replied,

“I heard you say
that you will pay.
I’ll fly you high if you will foot all of my bill.”

The Frog Princess

By Judith Westerfield

There once was a Prince

With a perpetual wince

In his kingdom alone

No wife for his own.

He looked far and wide

For just the right bride

He sailed the seas

And if you please

roamed over the land

for a princess’ hand

Not one maiden fit

“I’m ready to quit
Many too greedy
Most too needy
A lot too tall
Some too small
None, not one, right at all.”


The prince was bereft The only place left Was to take to the sky Learn to fly

He was up for the ride To find the right bride

“I’ll learn to fly”
he said with a sigh, “Where I can spy
my princess from on high I must find a wife
To be in my life”


“I’m of delicate sorts
Need to change into shorts So my legs can kick
Don’t want them to stick And my knees are free
to fly higher, you see”



Just as he should
he ran fast as he could landing in mud
With a resounding thud. Jumping from trees Catching his knees.
Try as he might
he couldn’t take flight.


Then spotting a cow . . .

“She’ll surely know how Take me up to the moon It can’t be too soon! Yes, a cow will do

Four legs to my two.”

the Prince cried. And the cow replied,

“I’ll try, if you will
foot the bill
Now with all your might Hold on tight”.

My tail, not my udder!”

She yelled with a shudder


“ How now brown cow Run faster please
I’m scrapping my knees!”

The prince cried And the cow replied,

“Ok Prince, guess you’ve found I’m better on ground
Where grass is green
That’s my scene.”

Your PERSONAL Sneek Peek at The Making of The Frog Princess

We blog for many reasons.  Chief among them is to keep ourselves amused in our advanced years.   We’ll let you figure out the other reasons.

Judy amuses herself by writing silly stories and “pomes”, loses interest and moves on to her next project.

Peggy is more cerebral (and organized).  She amuses herself by rescuing Judy’s abandoned projects and massaging them into REAL books.

Peggy is now in the process of colorizing, and putting together Judy’s last abandoned project The Princess Frog.

We thought you too might be amused by taking a peek at our process and progress: 

1. Judy Writes a story.

2. Judy does rough sketches for the story.

3. Judy’s publishing staff (meaning Peggy) uploads the sketches on her i-Pad and makes a clean outline.

4. Judy’s staff adds color

The Prince Searches the World for His Bride.

5. Judy’s staff frames the pictures

A Cow runs fast to help the Prince take flight

6. Judy changes her mind and wants different pants on the Prince. 

7. Judy’s staff re-draws, re-colors the picture.

(Judy thought Polka Dotted Shorts are more Princely)

7.  Peggy formats the writing using templates she spends hours researching in Amazon and Kindle.

8. Peggy inserts the images into the book template where they fit (until Judy changes her mind where the pictures go)

Considering there are 21 pictures Peggy has a lot of amusement ahead . . . 

Stay tuned . . . Peggy’s on a roll

Violet, Green and Flesh colored Faces by Peggy

Peggy has already well amused herself by publishing (Click on the titles):

It’s a little known fact that not all frogs are princes in disguise . . . there are two genders, you know, one of which is the weaker sex.

The Frog Princess

There once was a Prince

With a perpetual wince

In his kingdom alone

No wife for his own.

He looked far and wide

For just the right bride

He sailed the seas

And if you please

Roamed over the land

for a princess’ hand

Not one maiden fit

DSCN5901I’m ready to quit

Many too greedy

Most too needy

A lot too tall

Some too small

None, not one, right at all”

The prince was bereft

The only place left

Was to take to the sky

Learn to fly

He was up for the ride

To find the right bride

“I’ll learn to fly”

he said with a sigh,

“Where I can spy

my princess from on high”

I must find a wife

To be in my life”

DSCN5551

“I’m of delicate sorts

Need to change into shorts

So my legs can kick

Don’t want them to stick

And my knees are free

to fly higher, you see”

Just as he should

he ran fast as he could

landing in mud

With a resounding thud.

Jumping from trees

Catching his knees.

Try as he might

he couldn’t take flight.

Then spotting a cowDSCN5896

“She’ll surely know how

Take me up to the moon

It can’t be too soon!

Yes, a cow will do

Four legs to my two!!”

the Prince cried.

And the cow replied,

“I’ll try, if you will

foot all of the bill

Now with all your might

Hold on tight.

My tail! not my udder!”

She yelled with a shudder”

“How now

brown cow

Run faster please

I’m scrapping my knees!”

 

The prince cried

And the cow replied,

“Ok Prince, guess you’ve found

I’m better on ground

Where grass is green

That’s my scene,”

It’s just not my ilk

I’m going back to milk

 DSCN5899

The Prince spied a spider

who was an outsider.

“Spin me some webs

to attach to my legs

They’ll catch the breeze

when I bend my knees!”

 

the Prince cried.

And the spider replied

“I’ll spin if you will

foot all of the bill.

Take my web if you please

(To catch a breeze)

Wind ‘round your knees

attach to your tie

(take to the sky)

flap your legs to fly.”

Help! I’m dropping like lead

catching flies. . . . Instead!!”

the prince cried

as the spider replied,

“Have you lost your mind

My webs are fine!

Guaranteed not to tear

No matter where”

You’re no flyer I fear

just a prince, my dear

It’s just not your thing

To take to wing

Stop sticking around

stay on the ground”

 

The prince wasn’t mad

Just terribly sad

Sitting down to mope

He felt like a dope.

When lo! High up in the sky

a frog flying, No LIE!

Breaking the mold

With wings of gold

Froggie swoops down

wearing a crown.

A crown of red

perched on her head

The prince rubs his eyes

Looking up to the skies

An impossible sight

In a golden light.

“I can’t believe my eyes.

From out of the skies

I see a frog flying

without even trying!!”

the Prince cried

and the froggie replied,

“I heard you say

that you will pay.

I’ll fly you high if you will

foot all of the bill.

“Hop on my back,

I’ll cut you some slack

But don’t talkback.

I want no flack.”

So off they go

the Prince in tow

hanging on for dear life

looking for a wife.

What a wondrous sight

From this vantage of flight!

Still, all I can see

None suited for me

Many too greedy

Most too needy

Some too tall,

or much too small

None, not one, right at all”

Not one maiden fit

“I’m ready to quit,”

the Prince sighed,

as froggie replied

“You needn’t fear

Your bride will appear.

Your wish will take wing

IF you say the RIGHT thing.”

 

“Acbracadabra! cried the Prince

Making the flying frog wince

“Let there be light!”

Shouting with might

“No! No! that’s not right!

 

Bippity, Boppity, Boo?

1,2,3 Buckle my shoe?”

 

“Open sesame

Bring a bride to me!”

 

“Ok, let me focus . . .

Hocus pocus?”

 

“Free! no charge!

Small, medium or large”.

 

“I give up, let me go

much too taxing, you know”

 

“I’ve spent my life

Looking for a wife

On land, in the sea

Someone perfect for me”

 

“Now in the air.

“It’s just not fair

None fit to a tee

None suited for me

Many too greedy

Most too needy

Some too tall,

or much too small

None, not one, right at all

It’s an eye-opening site

From this vantage of flight

A perfect bride doesn’t exist

Once again, I’ve missed,”

the Prince sighed

and the froggie replied,

Perfect you’re not

YOU are lacking a lot

Can’t even fly

on your own in the sky.”

 

“You’re not very fair

for a prince with no hair

And It may be moot

But you’re short to boot.”

 

And the Prince sighed

as he replied,

“You’re right I fear

I’ve looked far and near

no matter if tall

or very small

Whether blue, red or green

Tall, wide or lean

Please stop my flight.

Maybe all are just right”

For a prince with no hair

I’ve not been fair.”

And lo the skies shook,

not by the book,

A sight to behold

Breaking the mold

comes a princess so fair

it’s hard not to stare

Shimmering green

A wondrous scene

A crown of red

perched on her head.

Hard to grasp

As the Prince gasped,

“From out of the blue?

Too good to be true!

No matter if tall

No matter at all!

No matter if green

You are my queen!!”

The Prince cried!

And the princess replied,

“Well! It’s taken awhile,”

she said with a smile.

And drops the prince,

with nary a wince,

face first in the mud

with a resounding THUD

The Prince spun his head

as the Princess said,

“Now know! When you take flight

morning, noon or night”,

She said with great mirth,

“I promise to bring you . . . back to earth”

 

At last he knew . . .

his wish came true . . .
