With a bit of luck.....

With a bit of luck

A duck

Will come into your life.

When you are at the peak

Of your great powers

And your achievement towers

Like a smoking chimney stack.

There’ll be a quack,

And right at your feet,

A little duck will stand.

She will take you by the hand

And lead you,

Like a child with no defence;

She will lead you

Into wisdom, joy and innocence.

That little duck.

We wish you luck.

Michael Leunig

    1. Thanks Dee! I'm afraid I don't have your talent for poetry, so I had to cheat and use this, but I thought it went quite well with her and her dress! The duck is from Virgin Atlantic...I used to have loads of them, everywhere I looked so there was a little rubber ducky hiding...I have no idea where they all went though...maybe they migrated to warmer climes or something!

    1. Thanks very much Karin! Actually that wig is really old and seen better days but because it suits her so well, I'm struggling to change it, so it stays and I live in hope that it won't fall apart one day soon!
      The dress and duck actually came first then I searched for the poem to make the post a little more interesting than just a "Look what I made...." sort of post!!! I need to take some lessons from Dee on how to make my own poetry because the extent of mine would be more like a limerick!!!!
