Once upon a time there was a princess fair,
the youngest child with full golden hair.
She loved to play beside a pretty lake;
a whole afternoon to play she would take.

She had a favorite golden ball to throw,
tossing it up and down to watch it glow.
Today she threw the ball too far away;
And this time in the air it did not stay.

Instead, the ball rolled for the lake so deep;
that the poor princess began to weep.
The lake was deep as it was also very dim,
but the princess could not even swim.

And the princess heard a croaking sound;
it was a voice that came from the ground
She looked down and could see a frog,
who was almost hidden by the soft fog.

"Frog, I just lost my favorite small golden ball,
Deep into the lake I had just watched it fall.
I don't know how to swim and I can't see a thing,
if only the water was a shallow brook or spring!"

The frog was moved by the princess so sad,
"I will get now the ball to make you glad!
I wish please to eat on your golden plate too,
and sleep on your bed, please make this true."

The princess agreed for she wanted was the ball;
because this silly frog will not have it all!
So the kind-hearted frog swam very deep;
hoping that the promise she would keep.

The frog indeed found the ball after a while;
returning this to the princess with a smile.
But instead of saying thanks the princess ran;
to befriend the frog wasn't part of her plan!

The frog soon knocked on the castle door;
"Please keep the promise you made before!
I retrieved for you the golden ball like I said;
you promised I could dine and sleep on your bed."

As soon her father heard this, he was mad;
to break such a promise was very bad!
The king, therefore welcomed the frog inside;
and the princess could not run or hide.

She was angry that they shared the same plate;
the idea of sharing a bed filled her with hate.
She did not want her father mad once more,
But she would make the frog sleep on the floor!

The princess had the frog going to her room;
Sharing her space filled her with dark gloom.
The frog went to the floor when she went to bed;
and she did not keep her promise like she said.

The frog began to sniffle and then to cry,
the floor was cold and the bed was too high.
"Princess I promised to get you your ball;
Don't you want to befriend me at all?"

But then her heart grew soft and she felt bad;
the frog kept his promise and she made him sad.
She decided to pick up the frog from the floor,
"I'll treat you now much better than before.

I'm sorry for being so impatient and so mean,
All happened because you're slimy and green.
But now I would like very much to be your friend,
Therefore, I will no longer have to pretend."

Suddenly, the frog transformed into a prince;
Because the frog had been cursed ever since.
He needed a princess to break the spell,
and her change of heart did him so much well!

And the moral of this story is:
Don't judge people too quickly. There may be times that you will judge people by the way they look, refusing to be their friend because you don't like their looks. You have to get to know the person better. It is also important to keep one's promises.
