Memories Of Raymond Froggatt

Originally published on May 9, 2014 in Poetry    

J’ai vu une petite grenouille laide…

You were my noisy Frog
The prince of them all
One I can’t ever forget
A delight to recall

You always made me tremble
At my favourite choice
Your “All because of you” my love
In that gravely noisy voice.

You sang all your love songs
Like they were meant for me
It was you and I together
Where no one else could see.

I didn’t want a handsome prince
I loved you Froggie, as you were
Rough toned and rugged
The sound made me purr.

Eat your heart out Sinatra
My Froggie had you beat
Well that is my opinion…
To me…always so sweet.

Hi Val!

I nearly did not see you 🙂

Now, I must confess I had never heard of him but having looked him up and listened to him…well, all I can say is budge up, I fancy him too.

Lovely man. just the way I like 'em!

Great to see you posting again!

Hello Val, it has been a little while since you last posted on UKA. Are you well? I like the Froggatt/Frog play on words although, he being British, it doesn't refer to his nationality.

By the way, it should be 'gravelly' and not 'gravely' on the last line of the second verse.
