Kermit recites poetry

Over on facebook, Rosalie, of Rose's Garden, mentioned a poem called Trees by Joyce Kilmer. She quoted the first line and I instantly thought of ... well, let me quote it here and see what your first thought is.

I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree.

Well, any thoughts? 

Anyone else say, 'Kermit the Frog?'

I have a vivid recollection of Kermit reciting this. Unfortunately I can't find any record on Google - and if it's not on google it didn't happen. Or did it?

This would have been on The Muppet Show; I didn't watch Sesame Street

Please someone, tell me my brain isn't firing blanks.

I couldn't find it either. I doubt that we both imagined it.
Nice video!

Not to worry, Luna.
