Tommy and Tammy

Tommy Tadpole swam in a little pond
Where the tall reeds grow,
And dragonflies and lizards
Watch the mountain water flow.

One day Tommy and his friends
Went out in a bunch
To gobble up some algea
For their noontime lunch.

Tommy looked up and
To his surprise,
He saw Tammy Tadpole,
With her great big eyes.

Tammy said to Tommy,
In a horrified way,
“Where did your gills go;
Did you lose them today?”

Tommy looked at Tammy
But he soon forgot his lack
As he said to Tammy,
“You have legs in the back!”

The two friends swam on
And for many more days
They discovered they were changing
In many different ways!

One day Tommy showed Tammy
He had front legs now too
Then Tammy said to Tommy
“See, my legs also grew!”

Tommy said to Tammy,
“It is just as I feared,
Now my beautiful tail
Has totally disappeared!”

Tommy and Tammy
Swam upstream near the land
And they saw a little boy
With a camera in his hand!

“Look!” called out the boy
Quite loudly to his mother,
“There’s two frogs sitting on logs
Real close to one another!”

Tommy and Tammy,
Sittin’,sunnnin’ on the logs,
Started looking all around
Trying to see those frogs!

Then “Snap!” went the camera
In the little boy’s hand;
And Tommy and Tammy
Looked from pond to land!

Tommy said to Tammy
“Well now, don’t you see,
That those frogs that he saw
Are really you and me!”

Then Tommy and Tammy
Hopped off into the night
“We have turned into frogs!”
Tammy squealed with delight!

Tommy said to Tammy
“This is not so bad,”
Come and be my wife
On our own lily-pad!"

So Tommy and Tammy
Then became quite fond
Of their lily-pad home
In the little mountain pond.
