Sonnet CCVI

A Chicken and a Dog went out to see the Frog.
Said Chicken to the Dog, “Where is that Frog to-day?”
Said Dog to Chicken fair, “Perhaps he’s gone to play!”
The Chicken and the Dog searched at the barren bog,
but Chicken and the Dog found not their friend the Frog.
They searched the lily pads, the willows solemn grey,
they searched the river green, they searched the livelong day –
but Chicken and the Dog found not their friend the Frog.

Then meeting them at night, that Frog appeared at last
and brought with him a ship that moved so very fast!

They rode off to the moon, to see what they could find.
They had a lot of fun, and more as time had passed,
for friends may be quite late and may be always last,
but never think a friend shall purge you from their mind.


  1. Inspired by Beth's writing prompt about children's books!! I've always wanted to write a Seuss-esque sonnet :P

    Thanks Beth! :)

  2. Ah! I just noticed my school's name is CCVI (Centennial Collegiate and Vocational Institute) and this sonnet's my CCVI'th! To high school! (And its awful English teachers...)

  3. Animals visit
    season changes to winter
    full moon friends bloom new

    Haiku to you!

  4. Just want to share that I read your poetry to my children. They stop to listen as best a 2 yr old and 8 month old can and I hope they can grow up to be as ambitious and creative as you! Thank you for offering words that can be enjoyed for people of all ages!
    Antibloggedy =)

  5. Thank you, Kalei! That really brought a smile to my face :) I hope your children enjoy writing as much as I do when they grow up!

  6. Okay, time for me to play catch-up! Thrilled to see you writing more based on my prompts--woo hoo!

  7. Yay :) And you're an amazing ketchupper! Your comments are more prolific than my posts now!


A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

Thanks, Wordle!
