Mommy Duck*

141-01-january-31st-2016

We cycled to our favourite park and there they were
Mommy duck and her little brood, endearing as ever
We waited for them to waddle pass us in our spot
Mommy duck followed by her ducklings
Last spring Mommy duck was making a nest
Then she unveiled the nest and out they came
They circled around the pond hoping to find food
Some children threw some bread to them
Otherwise there were grubs in the pond
Ah, such a delight watching them grew
We saw all the changes through the weeks
Next spring the ducklings build their own nests
A taste of the circle of life
