Behold the Duck(s)

We enjoyed Storytime at the library yesterday and it was ducky.  No, really!  The theme was ducks and started off with a poem by Ogden Nash.  I couldn’t help but smile.  There is a story in my family from my dad’s grade school days.  He and his classmates were each to memorize a poem to recite before the class. My father, ever the practical, get ‘er done sort chose a short and to the point piece.  The same Nash poem from storytime.


The Duck

Behold the duck.
It does not cluck.
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks.
It is specially fond
Of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups,
It bottoms ups.
