American Beautyberry

Out walking.

Only one here.

Except for..

The tall white crane

And the far away train

A dozen turtle noggins poppin

And a woodpecker squawkin

Magenta polka dots

Hidden in all the right spots

Spider up high

And, Miss Duck closer by.

When I arrived she was in the hand

Of the outstretched log

Peering into the watery deep

Face to face with more than I could see

But, with a hop and a snap

Just like that!

She jumped full feathered in

With a light quack for a good long swim

So, there I am.

The only one here….

But, not really…
