This nonet, Feathered Friends, has the proper nine to one descending syllable formatting and recalls meeting chatty ducks with a full day planned of fowl play.

This is a very amusing nonet, which I would expect to be well-received in the voting booths. I like the way you have personified the ducks by giving them voices, and the double entendre on the last syllable is very fine.

This is so cute! My son is obsessed with ducks. I'll have to read it to him. I hope it does well in the Nonet Poem Contest prompt.

All the best. Have a great evening!

"Waddled on, looking prim" is such an appropriate observation of ducks. I enjoyed your entertaining poem - it painted a picture of your encounter very humorously.

I just love your nonet. It's sweet, and well written and thankfully your syllables count is correct, which is sometimes difficult to do. You've got your ducks all lined up in a row :)) Best of luck in the contest,
linda

Well done. Not just luck to see duck, but to hear their story as well. This will do well in the contest. Nice alliteration and rhyming. I liked the term "waddle walk," and hope I don't get there too soon!

You did a great job, Mystery Author, with your nonet contest entry. Your syllable count is correct per line, the image is perfect and so cute, the rhymes work well to tell of this encounter, and the shape of the completed poem is great. Best wishes.
Thanks for sharing.
Respectfully, Jan

There are so many lovely elements working together in this piece. You incorporate rhyme, the nonet form and take us on a journey through nature. Well done!
