Leapfrog

timidly the edge approached

adjacent shore quite in sight

jumped, leapt, tumbled

kept feet didn’t land quite right

 

mired in mudslides

extrication is tricky

clamber, climb, cleanse

rinsing off the sticky

 

next time a running start

great gamboling strides not too fast, not too slow

vault, buck, pounce

to a shore too far to see, I will become the crow
