Little Duck

In raincoat of yellow
And rubbers of red,
With rain pouring down on his back,
This fine little fellow
Just lifts up his head
And gives out his happiest "Quack."
Olivia {2 yrs old} kept saying, "I want to ho'd one!"
If a child
is to keep his inborn sense of wonder,
he needs the companionship of at least one adult
who can share it,
rediscovering with him
the joy,
and mystery
of the world we live in.
