Every year in March

our frogs have a party,

more of an orgy really.

But this year

there were two late comers,

a loving couple

who waited

until after the party was over.

Lily and Henry were their given names

and come the summer

we delighted to see

their offspring 


up and down our pond,

all those tiny Lilys and Henrys

growing ready for next year’s party.
