In the dusky evening
  a duck crossed the highway,
waddling purposefully forward
  with her downy ducklings
     crowded behind.
She passed in front
  of my idling car
    and reached the middle
      of the road
as a cluster of cars
    from the other direction.
I held my breath
  and watched
    a BMW acclerate
At the last moment
  it slid to an abrupt
The duck marched on
    to the traffic pile up
or the cars
  waiting, watching,
     keeping her safe.
