Chartreuse Feathers

There was this teal duck and Canada goose,

   That 'neath a cloistered Colorado spruce,

      Enjoyed a lusty-ful tryst,

         Ending up in a quaint twist!

            Their offspring sported feathers of chartreuse!

    I have a feeling that those were some very ugly ducklings..Well, I wonder if they will migrate or just hang around the pond?..Enjoyed reading this one today..Thanks for the visit to my page..Your comments always lift me up a little higher..I have another thing to be thankful for today..An airplane crashed about 8 or 10 miles from my home yesterday.It had been flying low over my home all afternoon..I am glad that it went away from here to come down..I don't know any details..Sara
