A pleasant afternoon by a lake.

Duck And Drake.

A beautiful sight a Duck and Drake,
Swimming serenely on our local lake.
The duck was dressed in russet brown,
Feathers for the drake a colourful gown.
I was sitting at a table drinking beer,
When suddenly a majestic Swan did appear.
Dressed in a feathered coat of white,
It made a most impressive sight.
Then I saw some Rainbow Trout,
This was indeed a wonderful day out.
Out in the freshness of the country air,
Nature had put on her show with flare.
If you too go out to the lake,
I am sure it will your day make.
There is so much to be seen and enjoy,
A delightful experience for every Girl and Boy.
Adults too are invited to the local lake,
Perhaps you too will see the Duck and the Drake.

A beautiful scene.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 8/29/2009
Along with mosquitoes, ants and other assorted pests. Just kidding, I really liked this serene lake travelogue, I remember living in Phoenix and going to one of those lakes you write about. It was a fun time. And you are correct also about the colorful activity on the lake. Nice write.
