I was sat by the fire's earlier, had two going lol, Totally absorbed in working nettles. Got this feeling someone's watching me. Looked up, and this duck is sat in the canal, studying me intently, Not a ripple in the water. Proper piercing gaze. There was almost a solemnity to how it was looking. And a curiosity. Then just after a few moments, off it went on its merry way. My presence superfluous again. I roared with laughter at his aristocratic demeanour haha. Magical moment.
