A Time to Stay by John Filsinger

A Time to Stay by John Filsinger, Clearfield, PA

On that same trip we saw wild ducks —


The kind that yearly fly

Great distances in spring and fall

Their cycled life to ply.

We saw the male first skimming close

To water’s rippling crest,

And then he landed near the bank –

Perchance a transient rest?

But soon we noticed there were two

Within that reedy place;

A female with a broken wing

Could not depart her base.

Would then the male abandon her

And rise into the sky?

He chose to settle there with her –

Can you imagine why?

We felt great satisfaction

While gliding on our way;

We’d learned substantial lessons

From sylvan friends that day.
