What has happened to the Frog King?

It was back in the heady days of Fall that the Frog King,
dazzled by the glory of the colours around him,
voiced a desire to remain above ground for the winter.



Knowing the foolishness inherent in this decision, the Royal Advisor voiced his concern.  His advice fell on deaf ears as the King defiantly decided to test his strength against that of mighty Winter.


Faithful servant that he was, the Royal Advisor chose to remain by the King's side, though he turned his back to him, to mark his point.


One blustery December night he lost sight of the King and has sat alone, stone-faced and grim, ever since.  He remains resolutely in place, knowing he must wait for Spring before he can begin the grisly search for the impetuous King.

  2. Or maybe he'll dive to the bottom of the pond and stay there where he belongs!
