... aka the song of the eiderducks, beautifully serene :>)


... ah-ooh!

Stormswept willow limbs sprawl upon sunwarmed grass banks,
speckled rabbit pair graze as they crawl round rent flanks,
glancing up for the eiderducks sailing in ranks
singing chug-chug-chug-chugger ah-ooh!

Squawksome gulls group to squabble for reasons unclear,
voices peevish and cross, piercing pain for the ear,
yet the eiderducks smile with invincible cheer
singing chug-chug-chug-chugger ah-ooh!

Pinkfoot geese flock swoops over the silver silk lake,
honking bold brassy fanfares throughout hazel brake,
but we listen for brown duck and black-and-white drake
singing chug-chug-chug-chugger ah-ooh!
