The Little Duck and The Big Ocean

May 24, 2011 at 9:57 pm (Children's Story) (, )

And the little duck awoke from his sleep.

And discovered that he was not on the beach of a small lake.

But on the beach of a big ocean.

And the little duck looked around.

And noticed that his mother and brothers and sisters were all gone.

There was no one on this beach but himself.

Well no one that was a duck but himself.

And the seagulls cried above him.

And fishes leaped out of the water.

That was an awfully big ocean.

And he was an awfully little duck.

Maybe he should turn around and walk across the road and maybe into the forest and maybe find a small lake somewhere.

It would be safe.

The duck looked at the sky.

But the rest of his family was gone.

Sure he might get to know other ducks back at the lake.

But were there ducks on the other side of the ocean?

He did not know.

And there was only one way to find out.

Gulp!

That was an awfully big ocean.

And he was an awfully small duck.

But the little duck put his webbed feet into the salt water.

And went in.

And started to swim out towards the middle of the big ocean.

How does this story end?

We write the ending ourselves.

For you see, we dear children are that little duck facing the big wide ocean.
