Brisk morning swamp walk–
wood ducks lift from the water
whistling as they fly.

A pair of wood ducks
lifted from the swamp and voiced
their whiny complaints.

Morning swamp walk brought
pre-historic-sized skeeters
and anxious wood ducks.

Wood ducks taking off
in the mist—just a whistle
and the sound of wings.

Wood ducks take off — whrrrrr —
wings propel them off the swamp —
their squeaky calls fade.
