HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE and all that time, I forgot the end of this Froggies Rhyme

SELIGOR'S CASTLE
 
Hey Diddle, Diddle, the Cat and the Fiddle
The Frog jumped over the Tortoise
This was fun at the time, but I really can't rhyme
Many words rhyming 'sept Porpoise.

Tortoise rhymes with Porpoise

Don't go away though, I've been searching for some really nice stories or rhymes for us..... and I have found a
few in a 107 year old book. so they should be brand new for most of  you.
Now the first poem is called "The Foolish Frog " and was written by a gentleman called Stephen Southwold, but he changed his name quite a lot when he became famous, though he wrote this as Stephen Southwold when he was in his twenties.

THE FOOLISH FROG.

A nimble, lithe and spruce young frog,
Who gambolled by the riverside
With many an eager hop and jump,
A slow old tortoise there espied.

Puffed out with pride, the vain young frog
Sneered at the slow one's crawling gait;
"It must be hard," he jeered,
"To be condemned to such a fate."

I don't suppose," he then went on,
"You know how fine it is to leap,
In fact," he mocked, "I half believe
You merely crawl along asleep.

"Yet, if you'd only try to learn,
It's simpler far than A B C.
Why, mother said she did not spend
A single moment teaching me."

"Now watch me!" said the foolish frog,
Tortoise rhymes with PorpoiseThe tortoise tried to hide a smile.
The young frog leapt .  .  .  . too late he saw
The slyly waiting crocodile !...
