Out For A Duck
Out For A Duck Out For A Duck

Out for a Duck, by Francis Salvesen

The Duck and the ducklings out there on the pond

They Quack to each other and always respond
with love and advice and instructions to follow,

Nipping-out mud, without pausing to wallow.
There’s one little cutie and one to be shot of;

The flock needs to feed, and the bills – there’s a lot of!
And over the water, until they can fly

They swim with their heads and their tails raised up high.
These elegant creatures that feather the nest

Much more than a duvet or well-lined coat vest!
They’re birds of a feather and not at all stuffy

But friendly and furry and young and SO fluffy!
And floating on water, they paddle with charm 
A natural sight, in the joys of spring calm.

A Mother Duck surrounded by eight little ducklings, swimming through the water, which reflects the patterns of waves from ther swimming, in greys, blues and purples
