give us a flood of water.
Let it rain tomorrow and always.
Give us plenty of little slugs
and other luscious things to eat.
Protect all folk who quack
and everyone who knows how to swim.
Isn’t that a funny little poem
We have had two ducks visiting the pond every year for ages.
They never seem to raise any ducklings but they are a welcome sight when they arrive.
I found this poem in a children’s book.
It is by Carmen Bernos de Gasztold (translated by Rumer Godden)
It reminds me of our two visiting ducks.
