There lived a Duck in a pond and it saw a Kangaroo hop around briskly. She admired the Kangaroo and one day, when she could not keep it to herself she spoke:
Good gracious Kangaroo, how lucky you are! You hope over the fields and water and it looks like you would never stop. I'm so bored here in this pond.I want to go out and see the world like you. I wish I could hope like you.Please give me a ride on your back! I would sit silently through the long day and speak nothing but quack. We'd go to Dee and the Jelly No Lee over the land and over the sea. Please, take me for a ride.
This needs some little reflection. It might bring me luck and there's no objection except one. I would tell you if you allow me to speak that your feet are unbearably cold and they might cause me rheumatism.
I have thought over that completely as I sat on the rocks and I have bought four pairs of knitted socks for my web-feet. I've bought a cloak to keep out the cold. I'd smoke a cigar everyday to keep you away from cold. all for your love dear Kangaroo.
I'm ready, but to keep my balance sit steadily at the end of my tail and be quite.
So, both of them went with a hop and a bound and went hopping around the world thrice. They were the so happy, who would be so happy as the Duck and the Kangaroo.
