A Sweet Reminder

You left me this morning

Skipping off to school

And turned back toward me

One more time

To give me a wave

And the most happy smile

You reminded me how

Earlier this morning

The ducklings had moved

Skimming across the lagoon

Dunking their heads

Down into the muck

Then rising those sparkling beaks

Up to the sun

There is so much Joy

Just in living

(No need to worry about outcome)

You live

Just to skip off to school

As those ducks live

Just to move,

To eat,

And to be warmed by the sun.
