A Frog Sees His Reflection/ The Frog Prince/ Anne Sexton

D's Photos, Well-known Poetry



 

Suddenly the well grew

thick and boiling

and a frog appeared.

His eyes bulged like two peas

and his body was trussed into place.

Do not be afraid, Princess,

he said, I am not a vagabond,

a cattle farmer, a shepherd,

a doorkeeper, a postman

or a laborer.

I come to you as a tradesman.

I have something to sell.

From The Frog Prince by Anne Sexton

  1. Thank you. I appreciate your encouragement. Soon I plan to go out and take some more photos. But really I would like to go downtown and take some photos of city life. I have gravitated towards sun, water, plants and nature in general since the start. It really is time to look in other directions too.
