The “Ribbit” Of The Frog

The “ribbit” of the frog

Sitting on his lilypad,

He lashes out for winged morsels,

Mear bits to sustain–

He never complains.

Enough it is for him to sit

Watching day turn to night

And night to day.

Never bored,

Never desiring more,

He lives by heaven’s design.

Lazy–he is not!

Wanting for nothing

He is content.

I long to be like the frog

Taking only what I need,

Wanting nothing more,

Living by my nature…

Simplicity.
