G, the Alpha and Omega of Spring -- Goslings

Patience dear, I'm gathering food...  Just sit on the nest and rest.  Soon enough we'll be chasing another brood, worrying, wondering, gathering, herding, then one day...



They grow up so soon, she says. 


They stayed at my side, followed me everywhere I went, ate what I gave them and slept by my side. We showed them how to find food, seek shelter, flee from dangers, and live on the ponds. 


Don't they know how dangerous the bridge can be?




Now look...  I am...    But all I have are feathers and fluff where once my babies slept...  I see...  But we gave them wings to fly...  Yes...  Patience dear.


Another day, another season...  They will come this way again.

  8. Love this piece, Letty. We have a 'stream' that wanders through a shopping center. The geese and ducks have adopted it and we get to see babies there in the Spring. Thanks for your story of the Canadian Geese.
