1021 – Not a Duck

Not a Duck
Not pictured: the trampoline helping Stella attain flight.


The mockingbirds sit in the trees
and listen all day long
And hope to hear beyond the breeze
some other birdie’s song.
They hear the hymns of larks and loons
and whistle them right back.
I’ve heard them tweet a thousand tunes,
but never heard one quack.
