Ducks in the Garden is a short a cappella piece based on a very silly poem by Will T. Laughlin. It was premiered in June, 2012 by the San Francisco Choral Artists, Magen Solomon, Artistic Director. Hear the work performed in the amusing video embedded above.
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.
