Bottoms Up

Upside-down duck at Green Lake

You have to chuckle when you see ducks all topsy-turvy, upside down.  What are they doing down there?

To Play Alone
by W. H. Davies

A Tom Tit clinging upside down,
 Needs nothing more to raise his wonder;
A lonely Trout will play until
 His own deep whirlpool sucks him under.
So when my money all is spent,
 And all my merry friends are gone –
What little Tom Tit, Trout, or Child,
 Will teach me how to play alone?
