a tale of the first time in the canal…from one of the goslings….Interpreted by Inky 🙂

It’s a bit hard stepping out

from the little nursery pool

to the great big vast waterway

but at least my family are nearby

mum and dad watching proudly on

no water wings required

chasing my brothers and sisters about the water

just flap my feathered feet and watch me go….

Sat around the sculpted edge

Petite feathered friends, preen

And pamper, dipping into and

Rolling about, in the clear blue water

Ripples create shapes as

Out and in they hop about,

Water splashing about on the


Acrostic Nature Places Poetry


Water – cascading

Altered by gravity

Taking a form of a clear wall

Each little drop, following the other

Rushing round drops and Rainbows

Falling down into a pool, or lake below

Always constant in motion

Lovingly powered by the

Long streams of water above it.
