Wee Wednesday "Weader": I'm a Duck!

Inside
my egg,
cramped wings
and legs.

I lie
and wait,
not sure
my fate.

Peck - peck
a crack.
Look out,
stand back!

With one
big burst,
I hatch
beak first.

Wet and
soggy,
wobbly,
groggy.

To eat
I peck,
I stretch
my neck.

Water
I drink -
Uh-oh
I stink.

I waddle
to walk,
I peep
to talk.

I swim
and glide -
Whoa,
a slide!

I have
good luck.
Look at me
I'm a duck!




Ginormous  thank you to today's "Weader", Benedict Turtle Cumberduck, our resident (for the moment) duck!
And huge thanks to JOE UHLIK for his mad video editing skills. (email me for the musical version of this video - it's worth a watch AND listen).
