A duck ...

Artist's Description

© 2010 Chris Armytage, Fine Art Photography, Daylesford

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
