Morning comes — The day is fine; Ducks in the garden Standing in line.
Noontime comes — Sun overhead; Ducks in the garden Buttering bread.
Evening comes — Shadows grow long; Ducks in the garden Playing mah-jongg.
Nighttime comes — Full moon shining; Ducks in the garden Pleasantly dining (As only ducks can) On Peking Man.
