Day of the Ducklings

The best surprise. One year, for the YTReading in the Teahouse, there was a family
of ducklings in the pond, as never before when we were there, 
 at the Japanese Friendship Garden!
They were quite adept in the water. 

Here the springtime has deepened
I go on and on,
go on and on.
The bank lined with willows dips slowly.
