We go to the pond to feed the ducks.
We see many wonders. What great luck!
Bursting with birds, insects, and creatures,
each, with their own distinctive features.
Five small green turtles swim with a purpose,
heads bob up and down on the pond’s surface.
Looking for tadpoles, insects, and small fish.
Together they make one delicious dish.
Eight soft brown ducklings by their ma they stay,
swimming and watching her all through the day,
diving for insects, water weeds, and snails,
paddling, splashing, and shaking their tails.
