Hop-toads... [Haiku for Stretching wings workshop]

Hoppy-toads, old frogs
Swim forever in their youth
Ignorance is bliss

Rhyme for Stretching Wings Workshop.

Born To Be Wild
I float upon stormy seas
Forever in my youth
Can't bring me to my knees

I'll ride the blustered winds
All my care-free days
Don't think of me a fool
I won't ever change my ways

I'll tame the ways of age
Figure out the road
Keep on jumping all around
Like Spring's hoppy-toad

So don't tell me to go slower
I just can't comply
If I say I will
Just figure it a lie

I tried to do as I thought it should be done, glad I got it right.~ Geez.
