Ducks in the Garden Morning comes — The day is fine; Ducks in the garden Standing in line. Noontime comes — Sun overhead; Ducks in the garden Buttering bread. Evening comes — Shadows grow long; Ducks in the garden Playing mah-jongg. Nighttime comes — Full moon shining; Ducks in the garden Pleasantly dining (As only ducks can) On Peking Man. Poem copyright © 1990 by Will Thomas Laughlin. Used with permission. Ducks in the Garden was premiered in June, 2012 by the San Francisco Choral Artists, Magen Solomon, Artistic Director.
