The Wizard’s Wand

The wizard waved his wand so high

Created rabbits in the sky.

Flowers appearing from tissues.

Doves out of bowler hats.

Now a sudden thunder clap.

The crowds applaud.

The wand placed down.

A child picks up,

my son.

He’s won the cup and crown,

a wizard’s cloak and wand.

He turns me into a frog

then back to mum again.

  2. Well thank goodness your son turned you back into Mom! I guess he figured frogs can’t cook. Ha ha.

  3. You’re fortunate, Carol. I’m sure there are a few children alive today that would LEAVE their parents as frogs! 😉
