Isabel Johnson - Grand Prize Winner

Congratulations to 8th grader Isabel Johnson of Anaheim, CA, for her wonderful poem "Won't They?".

Won't They?
by Isabel Johnson, Age 13

Listening to frogs
Violins in the night
My children will see them
Won't they?

Sitting by a stream
As it rushes by
It'll always flow
Won't it?

Nothing is forever
Things always have an end
We won't always be together
I know it

The frogs did no harm
They deserve a second chance
The clock is ticking faster
Make haste

Take nothing for granted
And help where you can
To do nothing is to regret
To look away and forget.

Factoid: Isabel's poem was featured in the April 2010 SAVE THE FROGS! Hardcopy Newsletter.

Ushree Sen Gupta

Congratulations to Ushree Sen Gupta of Kolkata, India, winner of the 18+ age group for his poem "Apparent".

Apparent

Frogs. Apparently ugly,
Man. Apparently beautiful,
Frog. Sacrifice lives on biology trays,
Man. Learns science. Discovers.
Still…
Ugly Frog, Beautiful Man.
Science tree spreads out..
Root absorbs so many lives..
Laughs the ugly frog.

Alisha Patel & Eliza Barton

Congratulations to 10 year olds Alisha Patel and Eliza Barton of Santa Cruz California, winners of the Under 13 age group, for their poem "A World Without Frogs".

A World Without Frogs

The mosquitoes have invaded,
the frogs have faded,
frogs are disappearing,
How I am fearing.
The frogs are gone,
There's no more croak or song.
Because of global warming,
The flies are swarming,
We need to change the thermometer,
It goes up and down like a barometer.
Frogs live in ponds they make lots of noise,
They bring me loads and loads of joys.
We love the frogs and now you should too,
So save them and don't put them in the zoo!
