Kindergarten Gems by  Agnes Taylor Ketchum & Ida M. Jorgensen






Twenty frogies went to school,

Down beside a rushing pool;

Twenty little coats of green,

Twenty vests so white and clean.

We must be in time, said they,

First in study and then in play;

That's the way we keep the rule,

When we frogies go to school.

Master Bullfrog, grave and stern,

Taught the classes in their turn;

Taught them how to nobly strive,

Likewise how to leap and dive.

From his seat upon a log,

Taught them how to say cutchalk;

Also how to dodge the blows,

From the stones tho bad boys throw.

Twenty frogies grew up fast,

Bullfrogs they became at last;

Not one dunce among the lot,

Not one lesson they forgot.

Polished in a high degree,

As each frogie ought to be;

Now they sit on other logs

Teaching other little frogs.
