Thursday, November 26, 2020
We have seen something like Tales on Trails in a couple locations, so decided to record the one from Newlin Grist Mill Park in Glen Mills, PA.
One Duck Stuck (1998) by Phyllis Root,

Down by the marsh, by the sleepy, slimy marsh,
1 - One duck gets stuck in the muck, down by the deep green marsh.
Help! Help! Who can help?
We can! We can!
2 - Two fish, tails going swish, swim to the duck.
Splish, splash. No luck.
The duck stays stuck deep in the muck down by the squishy, fishy marsh.
Help! Help! Who can help?
We can! We Can!
3 - Three moose munching on spruce plod to the duck.
Clomp, clomp. No luck.
The duck stays stuck deep in the muck down by the swampy chompy marsh. 
Help! Help! Who can help?
We can! We Can!
4 - Four crickets chirping in the thickets leap to the duck.
Pleep, pleep. No luck.
The duck stays stuck deep in the muck down by the pricky, sticky marsh. 
Help! Help! Who can help?
We can! We Can!
5 - Five frogs hopping on logs jump to the duck.
Plop, plop. No luck.
The duck stays stuck deep in the muck down by the creaky, croaky marsh. 
Help! Help! Who can help?
We can! We Can!
6 - Six skunks climbing over trunks crawl to the duck.
Plunk, plunk. No luck.

We can! We Can!
10 - Ten dragonflies zooming through the skies whir to the duck.
Zing, zing. No luck.
The duck stays stuck deep in the muck down by the muggy, buggy marsh. 
Help! Help! Who can help?
We can! We Can!
splish | clomp | pleep | plop | plunk | sloosh | slosh | slink | zing
They all help the duck who got stuck in the muck.
Spluck!
"Thanks!" said the duck who got out of the muck
down by the deep green marsh.
The End.
