|I once had a duck named Quacky.|
I once had a duck named Quacky, he was a wee bit whacky. During summer we played together, all day and all night. Quacky would even comfort me in times of fright. As time passed on, we became great pals. I listened to Quacky talk, quack, quack, quack, never a meow. Quacky's feathers felt as soft as freshly stuffed pillows, as we lay on the neighbor's lawn. With Quacky around, life was exciting, never time for a yawn. Summer with Quacky went by so fast, soon winter would come, just like it's done in the past. I knew what was coming; I could feel it in my heart. I knew someday winter would force us to part. It was getting colder now, Quacky would soon leave. Parting from him was something I could never conceive. So finally came the day, when Quacky went away. It was late September, Oh! I hate to remember. I asked Quacky “why?”, but got no reply. So began Quacky's flight to the south. I can still feel the tears running into my mouth. I hope every night that he will come back. Oh how I miss his beautiful quack. Tweet
