A tree-toad loved a she-toad who lived up in a tree. He was a two-toed tree-toad, but a three-toed toad was she. The two-toed tree-toad tried to win the three-toed she-toad’s heart, for the two-toed tree-toad loved the ground that the three-toed tree-toad trod. But the two-toed tree-toad tried in vain; he couldn’t please her whim. From her tree-toad bower, with her three-toed power, the she-toad vetoed him.
