Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose ( Howie and Lily)


Howie and Lily were two baby ducks loved much by their human mother-

Who cared for them, in special ways, like no other.

For she would hold them, and let them play outside-

They would swim in a pool, and walk together side by side.

She protected them as best as she could-

To ensure their safety, she went the length, as she should.

But on one sunny day, a strange thing occurred-

That would cause havoc, and all their lives would be stirred.

Howie and Lily were playing outside, and their human mother stepped inside for a sec-

And immediately, she heard a call for help, an emergency, she could detect.

As she stepped back out, she saw the fluttering of huge wings, as the vulture flew away-

She only saw its back, and became hysterical is about all that one could say.

For as she looked for Howie and Lily, Howie was nowhere to be seen-

The vulture must have taken him, directly from the scene.

Lily stood alone, and her human mother did not know what to do-

Howie must have been taken away, for these ducks always stood two by two.

Cries were heard from this human mother, for her baby was gone-

And as she cried, she held Lily, as she checked the vicinity of the lawn.

She wished she had not stepped inside, for anything at all, and watched her babies outside-

Her emotions and anxiety, were now in full ride.

                  She looked to the skies, and knew that Howie would never come back-

Poor Lily, her life would have a hole, that would never be intact.

And just as she got ready to go inside, with her one baby duck-

A miracle happened, this human mother had a second chance at luck.

For Howie made a noise, and was suddenly found-

He had gone under the front porch steps, finally coming around.

He must have been so scared that he headed quickly that way-

And didn’t make a noise, until he thought, maybe, that the danger had gone away.

Lucky for them all, the vulture only had his eye, on the one-

And didn’t pursue Lily, who just stood still, and didn’t get much running for cover done.

Now the three spend their days outside together, with no other tasks to be had-

As they enjoy their good moments, and put away the bad.
