Monsoon Vignette II [ekphrasis]
Hey little brother! you've really advanced!
remember when you were a frog just like me?
in puddles we'd plash! O water's romance!
how wonderous is maya with all of its dance
you died as a frog and what do we see?
you've leapt up the rungs to mouse circumstance
but now you're an earthling with ants in your pants
does water so frighten? you're a fine sight to see!
hop on! I'll be careful we'll tour all of France
our friendship continues though we make an odd couple
I'm a frog in my sinews you're a mouse who's in trouble
looks not askance
