Steps

It was dreadful day. Mom disapproved his new relationship.
Upset, lonely Toady decided to run.  But where?
Not far from home he noticed the steps. ‘Nice way to escape’.

Hastily skipping up, just in last moment he has noticed familiar
figures of …parents, looked toward him.
‘Welcome!’ -  invited the sign in their hands.

Reading the sign, Toady unconsciously touched it. Next moment
he felt sustained by clay, connected all three toads…

Toady has done fixing figurine. What the surprise for the  fiancé!
She’ll definitely approve his work.

  14. I don't know how I feel - happy he is with his parents or sad cause he was turned to stone. But, I know I like the poem : )

  15. This was fun to read, but a tad perturbing as to the interrupted course of true love. Maybe his fiancee will touch the sign too and they can be Together Forever! This was original, made me smile.
