ping

ping ping
wobble wobble
looks up
and tumbles

ping ping
chirp chirp
stumbling on
it’s little feet

ping ping
up up
find the strength
to try again

ping ping
a sight to see
crooked head,
clumsy feet

ping ping
splish splash
simply happy
making us laugh

ping ping
lost and found
giving us joy
to have around

My parents found this little duck that must have been attacked by an animal.  It’s head was hurt and it could barely move.  It’s mother was gone and it was all alone.  My parents are taking care of it until it is strong enough to be let go in a pond.  They named the duckling Ping because of the children’s story.
