Ducks zoom in jet fast, then glide quite slow, wings cool
Geese gawk honk hiss—this pond is home—belongs to future big potato eggs
Ducks, heron, hawks shooed away with flapping wings, ritual daily blares
Pond impounds two geese each year—nesting here like clocks, bring spring
Honks of hope their love lasts, guarding against fox, raccoons, coyotes, hands
Of men & teen mischief—one goal—beaks to peck, eyes to peak, goslings reach the sun.
