Wild Birds ( a Haiku )

Updated on June 9, 2015
Beautiful bird and defender...
Beautiful bird and defender...
Mother waits patiently over her brood to be...
Mother waits patiently over her brood to be...
Mother and father await...
Mother and father await...
The pond calls their names...
The pond calls their names...

Natures beauty abounds...in my Haiku-similar poem...



Marvels of nature,

Wild birds...extraordinaire.

Patiently you watch,

Over your brood, with great care.


Mallards, so unique,

Mother...camouflaged to blend.

Father waits...on guard,

Overseeing...there to defend.


Nature's beauty found,

In your dress...colors abound.

Patiently you stay,

On your perch, the livelong day.


When your babes are born,

Shall follow you all around.

Waddle...quack in time,

Their's, such a beautiful sound.



As the daylight begins to fade...
As the daylight begins to fade...

      Mr. and Mrs. Mallard are such good parents, patiently awaiting the arrival of the little ones. I love watching duck families. The babies dutifully follow along, learning how to be grown ups and enjoying family time.

      I wouldn't trade those sights and sounds, as many times as I have heard them, for anything. A nice touch.
