Ducks in a road and life goes on.

Getting your ducks in a road? I am making plans as well as getting my ducks in a road. Are you making plans ‘getting your ducks in a row’? Or are you just going with the flow?

Ducks in a road, May 2020.

Either way as in this new poem (by me) for the young at heart – let’s remember – life goes on…


Woke up this morning
And before 8 o’clock,
Looked out the window and what did I see?
2 ducks a-parking by a parking space.

I quickly stepped outside the door
And saw there were more…

Another on the pavement.
Another on the road.
Count them altogether…

That makes four.

The first are a couple
Who visit every year.
This time they called some friends
With the message, ‘It’s all clear!’.

‘Parking time is up,
So we’re moving on.
But we’ll soon be back,
With a waddle and a quack.
Singing our new song…’

All together now
Let’s all sing along
There are …

‘Ducks in a road and life goes on’.
