TRY A STORY OR A POEM

WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY  selected from group offered on Elephant Child's each week to write a story or a poem.  This is fun and everyone should give it a try.  Use your way with the words and post on her blog and on your blog if you want every Wednesday.
I picked the third group of words offered again by Mark Koopmans:


Wallow
Spindle
Bratwurst
Knees
Trinidad
Victoria's Secret

THE FROG VACATION

Mr. and Mrs. Frog lived
In a log that was hollow.
It gave shelter
And a place to WALLOW.

Mrs Frog rolled some string
For crafts on a SPINDLE
While Mr. Frog sat quietly
Reading a book on his Kindle.

Travel thoughts filled him
As dinner came first.
He had Mrs. Frog barbeque
Delicious juicy BRATWURST.

He strained to help.
It caused him to wheeze.
He had tried to kneel
But frogs don't have KNEES.

The only thing left
That might make them glad
Would be to leave
On a vacation for TRINIDAD.

First to VICTORIA'S SECRET
An important stop for Mrs. Frog.
As then they waved goodbye
To the hollow log.
