Duck Visit

Duck Visit

If you live near a pond
or if the rain drifts
and makes the ground
wet but not muddy,
they may fly in
thinking that the land
feels as right as the
river or creek
not far away
but somehow 
firmer or cooler
and pleasing
to set a foot on
and survey 
trees, sky
and other water.

They won't stay long.
