April 15.20: Coping

Yesterday was awful

it started freezing cold

news blizzards swirled around me

I felt beat up and old.

The only thing to do

before I oxidized

was check the windswept pond

for life more civilized.

It seemed I had new neighbors,

two couples, more’s the merry;

I think they’re blue-winged teals —

how very salutary!

 

 

Do you know, dear reader?

Am I becoming duck-savvy?

I grieve to say my buffleheads have not come back.
