36 - Three Froggies

Recovering their feet,
sat squat before us
swelling and puffing
with a ludicrous air
of insulted dignity.

Handsome young specimens
of famous frog.
Their talent for music
has brought them
precociously into public notice.

Their general color was greenish brown
mottled and spotted
with reddish brown and yellow
the sides green and black;
the under part yellow
mottled with orange.
The eyes were positively beautiful
a rich chestnut hue
covered with golden white dots
which shone with metallic lustre.
The skin of the body was puckered into longitudinal folds.
