Born on reed beds,
The ugly duckling
keeps quacking and paddling.
As spring begins,
into a swan, grins.

Happy New Year to you all.
A real winner..just like the swan!
That's a lovely kind of progress, Jingle! Perhaps we are all ugly ducklings on the way to becoming swans!
I'm always partial to the ugly duckling, myself. It's much more enjoyable to look for the beauty that goes unnoticed. Nice poem!
love the "cute little ugly duckling" and the cattails and the poem. nice reading on a sunday evening
Nice transformation from an ugly beginning for the duckling :)
@jingle....that was lovely...!!! poem and haiku rolled in one!!!

Happy New Year, Jingle!
Lovely image and poem as always! Wishing you all the best for 2011, dear. TY for visiting my blog, while I was on a break. I broke my leg in December and still need physiotherapy, but it's getting better now.
I love those haiku and the pictures you chose to go with them. :D It's been dry here for the past two days and I've been gardening - it's been like Spring in my heart! :)
just lovely ji.
Yeah my little one goes to preschool. The other children started school on Monday.. Have a great day...
You poetic types are always making us more incoherent types feel bad about ourselves...:)
And the pic of the ugly duckling, well, he ain't so ugly!
Jingle, what a beautiful poem... i am remembering that everything must change... winter turns to spring and endings find their way to begin again...
Happy New Year!
"The ugly duckling
keeps quacking and paddling."..haha...
The ending is very well written :)
this is so beautiful! a great way to start the new year!
wish you and yours a super duper 2011!!
The Ugly Duckling always comes tops. Best wishes for the ensuing year. Thanks for everything in 2010
So fluffy duck! The photo really matches to the poem.
Thanks for commenting on my blog.
Have a wonderful day.

What a nice way to start the new year, as a swan!
Yes, I have known the duckling. I was the duckling, in a time of knowing. She is soul to me. Tears cried, growing pains. I loved this write.
This is wonderful. I love "ugly" duckling stories. Illustrations are delightful. Love your 2011 with carrots. Thanks for the smiles.
Happy New Year!

Thanks for your comment (I think!) The first time I tried to post it went to the wrong post of mine. Was this post about a day in the life of a home school family? By the way, nice post! Blessings.
