Little Frog Polly

Once upon a time there was a little frog named Polly. And everybody loved the little frog because she was so merry, and she hopped around trying to find a hiding place in the sun, but very cheerily. She didn't want to make anyone sad, because they all loved her and everyone would be so sad if little Polly were sad. Once she had babies. And she was very happy. She took care of them. But a cat wanted to eat those little babies. He tried to but he couldn't. He tried to find eggs, but he couldn't. And when the babies hatched, they were just like their good mother Polly. They grew up just like her, only some were boys, of course.

She wanted to catch one. She could already catch lizards. The hamster did not want her to catch him. So his little army came with their little sticks, not spears at all. Stick, stick, stick. So they tried to kill Axa. But she only kicked them away. The end.

The Little Snail

Once there was a little snail. And he was a very happy snail. He was very fat, but he got too lazy, so he got so thin because he was too lazy to get his own food. Once a grasshopper brought him some food, and he thought the grasshopper should always do this, because he was his best friend. The snail thought that the grasshopper would always bring him food, and so he got so lazy that even when the grasshopper didn't bring him food, he didn't get his own food. He got so thin that he died.

Little Foal

Once there was a little foal, and it was a nice little foal. Its mother was a nice large horse. And she was very beautiful. The foal was very cute. The foal had a father, and the father was a big horse. But once, the foal was naughty. He stayed where he was when his mother called him. His father was angry, but the foal was in the forest before his father could find him. The big, bad wolf came along, and he thought that the foal would be yummy.

The Little Lizard

Once there was a lizard, and he was little. He was not a big one. He did not know how to stay free. He always ran away from someone, but he was always caught, unless the person was very slow. Like maybe a turtle would be very far behind when the lizard was going its fastest. Wow, I can't believe how far behind. The little lizard always cried and said, "why can't I? Why do they always catch me?"
"Because, said his Mommy and Daddy, "we stay next to our hiding places. If you stay next to your hiding places, you will not be caught."
"But there's not as much sun near hiding places!" he cried some more.
"Well," said his Mommy and Daddy, "that's the deal. If you'll let yourself have not quite so much sun, then you won't get caught. Besides, they always let you go anyway."

Little Frog in the Meadow

Once there was a little frog.
And he was a happy little fellow.
He couldn't remember when he was nothing.
He could not remember when he was an egg.
And he could not remember when he was swimming,
because he was a big frog now.
He couldn't remember hopping in the meadow,
because he was big now.
Now, he was in a pet store!

Beautiful Flowers in the Meadow

Once there was a little girl, and she loved flowers. Her name was Axa. She picked flowers that were very beautiful. Some were little yellow flowers with heart-shaped leaves. And some were beautiful purple flowers. Some were daisies, and some daffodils. And some were poppies. She could write flowers beautifully too.

Spider's Babies

Once I saw a spider in its web.
I saw many little creatures. I knew they were not the flies, because I saw them moving.
And then I knew that they were spiders. Baby spiders. If they had not been baby spiders, they would have been teeny spiders. But I could see that they were babies because they were in the same web. The spider had a very good place, because it was in a rose bush, and there were some leaves that covered it, so you could not see it was a web unless you looked under it. The babies were in a snug little place with some of the flies the spider had caught. I saw him run down to one of the flies in his web, but then he ran back again. He could not have been scared, because it was a fly he went down to. Maybe he ran back because his babies wanted something.

Little Caterpillar Snuggled Up

Once there was a caterpillar.
He saw the butterflies
And he wondered where his brothers and sisters were.
He didn't know that he was looking straight at them.

He said, I wish I were one of those beautiful creatures up in the sky.
I wish that I were flying.
He didn't know that someday he would be.
One day, he said, I will roll up in a cocoon,
And come out as one of those beautiful creatures.
And so, he did.
And when he came out, he was a beautiful butterfly
But poor thing, his wings were all wet,
So he had to sit in the sun all day to dry them.
But tomorrow he came out and flew!

Fast and Flashy Fish

Once there was a fish
And he was very big
And he was fast, and he was flashy.

He went and found a sunken boat
and an octopus came out.
Let's do a race, said the fast and flashy fish.

Then he went and found a fat big fish.
He said, let's have a race.
And the big fish said, you get in front of me
So he went in front of him and . . .
Gulp! He was eaten up.

Froggy in the Meadow

Froggy frog, where is your home in the river?
Or is it by the river? Is it in the meadow?

You were a little tadpole swimming in the river.
Then you were a little egg.
Before that you were in your mother's stomach.

The Blue Whale in the Ocean

Big whale in the ocean,
You are biggest thing in the ocean.

Blue whale, blue whale what do you eat?
It's so funny you can't even see the thing that you eat.

Furry Caterpillar

Caterpillar, caterpillar, when will you change?
When will you curl in your cocoon?
You will turn into a beautiful butterfly.
All butterflies are very beautiful.

I love you because you will turn
Into such a beautiful little creature as a butterfly.
I hope nobody touches you because you are so beautiful
I love you. You look so beautiful because of your fur.

You are quite a large caterpillar and you will turn
Into a beautiful butterfly when you come out of your little cocoon.

The river is very near to my home.

Little Frog II

Little frog little frog, you once were a tadpole,

Swimming in the pond, swimming in the pond, swimming in the pond.

Not long ago, you were swimming in the pond as a teeny little tadpole,

And on before that you were a little egg.

Little frog, little frog, and on before that, you were nothing.

Little Lizard

Little lizard, little lizard, where are you off to?

To the little lizard town, I heard the lizard say.

But oh, dear lizard dear, where is your little home?

In the big oak yonder. Seven little egsies, there they lie upon the floor of the little hollow in the tree.

It’s a safe little nest, dear lizard, dear,

Safe little nest, dear, safe little nest dear,

I will watch over the young till you come back from the little lizard village,

And sometimes I’ll visit you in evening so.

The Stickleback

In the blue sea, in the blue sea

There is a little fish swimming, a bright little fish, a stickleback now.

It made a nest, found a mate, played with the mate,

The mate laid some eggs and went away.

And the little fry fish came out.

The brave stickleback, the brave,

He did not let a single one get get killed.

Not a single one, not a single one.

He made a little spot in the ground and kept them there until there were big.

But even when they had grown their thorns and could swim bravely,

He still swam after them to make sure they were safe enough.

Little Frog

(dictated by Axa)

Little frog, little frog, where is your little home?
Where is your little home in the lake, little swimming froggy?
Never go away. I will always visit you if you will tell me where your little frog nest is.

In the reeds so snug and tight, there are ten little eggs, and there they are.
I will come and tell you, dear, when the eggs are hatched.
So dear, keep always watch every day by the lake.

And I will come, I will come and tell you when the little frog babies are hatched.
When the little tadpoles are abroad you may catch two.
But only now, keep them in a real pond, that they may not see each other.

My Friend Rebecca

I have a friend in Italy. And her name is Rebecca. I love her, but I don't live next her, and I'm quite sad. But, sometime I am going to go and visit her. I'm sure that she will be very happy to see me again, because I'm sure that she missed me when I was in America, in Fallbrook. I love her. And that is the end of this post.
