Mallard Rescue

Rescue of Trapped Mallard Ducklings
by Karen Lichty (my sister-in-law)
21 July 2011

So off to the club we go
We round the corner and oh no....
Mama duck is loudly quacking
But wait..Peep Peep, Peep Peep, what's happening?
The little ones, where are they?
Among the rocks? Have they lost their way?
There. The dreaded grate!
How much longer can we wait?
At last! Some help is on the way.
Four strong hands, lift it up, move it away.
One-Two-Three-Four-Five-Six-Seven
Mama and her little ones reunited.
Today it was the hottest day.
Poor things.
