Paddling Pair


Paddling Pair


The first of May,
A courting pair I see.
Happy, splashing, dancing free,
In a city centre puddle.

A feature brought,
At great joy to children,
Usually running, playing here,
Now abandoned except they.

Up to their knees,
Waddling now the paddling pair.
Storm clouds darken over,
But they are loving life.

Carefree and keen to share,
Their love has filled the air.
Peacefully they cavort in tune,
Despite our current monsoon...
