Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Duck

Twinkle, twinkle, little duck,
How I wonder why you're stuck:
Up above the lake so blue,
Like a berry in my stew.

Twinkle, twinkle, little duck,
How I wonder why you're stuck!

Whoever gave this a 1 should take up reading comic books.
There is a typo in line 15, which should read, 'Call it, once more...' On a literal level, if I understand things correctly, Haddam is on the Connecticut River. Farmington, appropriately enough, is on the Farmington River, which meanders east and empties into the Connecticut River. So the Farmington steeple is actually on a tributary to the Connecticut. Also, the Connecticut River is tidal for about sixty miles in from Long Island Sound. So, for those sixty miles, I suppose one could say that it flows nowhere, like the sea. I wholeheartedly agree with the assessment by Messrs Howard and Palmer. -G
My guess is that the '1' giver will not be walking out on stage to receive his/her Pulitzer Prize any time soon.
Whoever gave this a 1, obviously doesnt know poetry of beauty and depth.
