Duck, Ducklings, Lake, Family, Water, Birds

I still remember when I was a little girl mom and dad loving picnics we liked this one place with lots of old shady trees and a wooden water pier the little ducklings swam right behind mother duck and they were so sweet to watch on the very end of the pier I liked to sit oh, can I feed them, daddy dad said yes of course but never feed bread my dear he gave me some nice green grapes some chopped old lettuce even some grated carrots oh, I ate some green grapes too why dad, why not bread he told me bread would kill them water fowl cannot digest bread- feed them good food dad knew lots about nature and feeding wee ducklings too I loved how they came paddling fast to get a treat mother duck drifted watching then- watermelon even I had some of that I was just a small girl then a memory now of an afternoon feeding precious ducklings from the pier of my mom and dad and that special place we loved I still go- to feed ducklings _________________________ March 20, 2022 (Edit from May 5, 2016) Poetry/Choka/Feeding The Ducks Copyright Protected, ID 03-1441-058-20 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Submitted to the Standard contest, A Brian Strand 1093 sponsor, Brian Strand, Judged 03/21/2022 First Place
