We had two visitors the other day;
And thank God they didn’t stay.
Let me tell you how it all began;
By our pool sat two feathered friends.
When we first saw them it looked so cool;
Two little ducks sitting by the swimming pool.
We wondered if they flew in with the wind;
And we hoped they hadn’t gone for a swim.
These two Mallards were such a pretty pair;
They were looking around while sitting there.
I got my camera and quietly I tried to sneak;
After all I just wanted to get a little peek.
But when the camera clicked, it was like a cough;
And these two little birds, together they flew off.
They were female and a male, cute as can be;
We’re glad there were only two and not three.
I know a swimming pool is no place for ducks;
And they were not there to bring us good luck.
They’d been swimming in the pool, I’ll have to confess;
My son had to work hard cleaning up the mess.
