Never Give Up

My dad said never give up to me,
as I sat upon his feathered knee.
Little ducks need to swim,
the water is like a gym.
I will not give up-I am free.

A good message for us all. Funny I should come across your poem today, just left the hospital after surgery and repeated your last line to myself. Theodore Roosevelt was famous for saying "Never give up" in a speech he gave once. It was a sweet little poem. Quack, quack.
