Ducklings big and ducklings small, This is how we feed them all Yellowbill and Featherbreast, Speckletail, and all the rest: On sweet meal they dine and sup Oh, how fast they eat it up! 'Tis indeed a pretty sight Soon the bucket's empty quite. "Quack!" when dinner is begun; "Quack!" they say when it is done; Though it wasn't known before, "Quack's" a duckling's word for "more."
Then the pretty feathered things Tuck their heads beneath their wings, Just as if for rest inclined, Quacking: "How well we have dined!" Later on, at evening cool, You will find them in the pool; Yellowbill and Featherbreast, Speckletail, and all the rest!
