We have a big pond
madam led her fella
to the huge puddles in the vegetable garden.
He didn`t approve at first
but soon joined her.
Just think that in not too many weeks
about fourteen tiny babes will appear
on the pond
and Mom and Dad will herd them
down the stream to the Annapolis Basin
where they will grow up
and at the first signs of Winter
they will all fly South again.
But let`s not wish our lives away!
