The Toad and I

A toad hopped up one day to me
And said nothing


But looked quite serious and made it clear
That he and I were not that different.






























Sitting there for hours, we said nothing and did nothing,
Each of us a stone in our own ways.

  1. He looks very wise, almost as though (if he were able) he would have a lot to say.

    1. I tried to start up a conversation but, no luck. I guess he's the strong, silent type :)
