What the Dickens

Charles Dickens at his very best: The Pickwick Papers; his character Mrs. Leo Hunter, at her garden breakfast party, reciting her own deathless poetry that the guests weren’t up to hearing three times!

“Can I view thee panting, lying
On thy stomach, without sighing;
Can I unmoved see thee dying
On a log,
Expiring frog!

“Say, have fiends in shape of boys,
With wild halloo, and brutal noise,
Hunted thee from marshy joys,
With a dog,
Expiring frog!”

Frogs and singing are ‘in’ these days.

  1. Frogs and dogs are always in. We got
    “Ribbit!” & “Ruff!” Kermit & Fluff. Ee-
    gads, mate! Best jump and run. 🙂

    Have a happy and loving day tomorrow, Kristin!
