Just Ducky

This summer produced a few poems - nothing too eloquent, but I like this one. Have you noticed the way ducks seem perpetually pleased? The expression on their faces is one of the sweetest smiles on earth. Yes, yes, just one of many. You probably have your favorites. Hmmm? :0)


The duck cradles water
on her breast.
Watch the way she smiles
as the crystal crest
lays its cheek against warm down
and lifts the lake,
without a sound,
then sparkles into Cupid's dart
beneath her little
bobbing heart.
