In a Flap!

Illustration : Elizabeth Webbe




Duck feathers a flyin'
She rushes and dashes
To iron the curtains
With shiny blue sashes

Duck's cooking and cleaning
And singing and humming
So much to get ready
Her friends are all coming

She'll open the door
Of her cosy Duck shack
With a flap of her wings
And a smile and a "Quack!"

Wanted to say so much more with this one.For instance, how she mopped the floor, then swam in the puddles. So much to do, so little time...

Love her duck shack! LOL. And you certainly did enough to produce an entertaining poem, busy or not...
