Listen and read-along with this charming poem by, Lousie Pocock.
How I wish that I could be
a plain and perfect duck.
You see my neck is far too long;
I wish that it were short and strong.
I primp and preen by day and night
to keep my feathers white and bright.
And when a pal calls out “QUACK QUACK”,
I “HONK” instead of quacking back.
Oh how I wish that I could be
a plain and perfect duck!
