That's Nice!


SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY

 THAT'S NICE!

A dip in the water; a shudder and shake.
What could be better for duck or drake?
A spread of the wings, a flurry of spray,
And the heat of the sun on a summers day.
That's when I say 'Oh what luck
That I was born to be a duck!'

AUSTRALIAN AUTUMN
(A Triolet)

The days draw in, the air grows cool,
The sun has grown a paler yellow.
A mist lies on the garden pool,
Where brilliant blue has been the rule;
The earth rewinds it's yearly spool,
The air is gentler, soft and mellow.
The days draw in, the air grows cool,
The sun has grown a paler yellow.
