Ducks

I found this wonderful poem "Ducks" by F. W. Harvey here. It is a long one but is well worth the read, and the site has a collection of many other lovely poems.

Added note: I discovered another post about ducks where I had used this poem, recommended to me by Janice at Jabblog. Apparently my 'rememberer' doesn't go back very far!

  9. Ducks seem to have all the fun. I like to watch them and listen to them in the water. I also like geese.
