Visiting the Pond

On a late spring day Make your leisurely way Down to the local pond Where people are gathered round Enjoying nature’s wonder While little kids ponder The mysteries of a frog’s life Explained by the pastor’s wife Flitting along the shallows Are wee little minnows Toddlers feeding ducks bread crumbs Most of which land in the pond scum Along the shore, children laughing & at play Watch out, you better get out of the way Some boys have started a fight Over a lost homemade kite
