The Two Frogs

The fierce rays of Old Sol had dried up the lake.
Two frogs, dwelling near, had new quarters to take.
In search of new lodgings they entered a dell,
When suddenly coming upon a deep well,
One said to the other: "How lucky we are
To find such snug quarters without going far.
Let's jump in at once and enjoy the cool water,
So nice and so deep, it may never be hotter."
"Stop! Stop!" cried the other, who had taken a peep,
And found that the well, though quite cool, was quite deep.
"I, for one, am not now very anxious to die,
Which we surely would do if the well should go dry."
Before taking new quarters, 'tis well, I've no doubt,
To first ascertain just how to get out.
