Jim the duckling

Jimmy the Duckling
was only young
and couldn't yet swim
he was frightened of water
and wouldn't jump in.

So kept away
but watched his brothers and sisters
swim and play.

''What's up Jimmy''?
aren't you going in
for a swim?.

''No Mummy
I'm scared of water
and haven't learned to swim!''

''Of course!''
your too young
but let me learn you
and in a week or two
you'll be able to swim 
with your brothers and sisters too.

''Your are a good little Duckling'
to keep away from water when you can't swim
and all the other ducks agreed
Jimmy smiled shyly
but he was pleased.
