Poem about Frog on Butter by my Dad


In learning violin, as with any instrument, daily practice is so important. We have to be like the frog and keep practicing and practicing until we have our music learned. My Dad wrote this poem which describes why I named my company Frog on Butter.


Frog on Butter, that’s an unusual name.
What, I wonder, is this company’s claim to fame?
Well, this frog falls into a bucket of milk, so I am told.
And immediately begins to sink, as there is nothing to hold.
But, the frog thought, I will not quit!
Then using his talent, courage, and wit,
Began swimming in circles, as fast as he could go,
And the milk, it turned into butter, don’t you know?
Then with a big grin and a little hop,
He leaped out of the bucket, perched on top!!
So, keep up your practice, and before too long,
Just like milk to butter, you’ll be playing your own perfect song.
