Once upon a time there was a duck who lived in Africa. She was an English duck and her name was Miranda.
Her great wish was to come to England and play with the girls and boys who lived there. So she said good-bye to her friends and flew away. For miles there was nothing but forest; then she saw the sea. She came to Italy. She could see the children at the seaside, they were playing with the golden sand. Then she came to some mountains and had to fly high over them. The air was colder and colder; it was snowing.
She was tired and hungry. It was snowing hard. She couldn’t see anything in front of her. And all the time she thought of summer days on English ponds, and of the children she was going to meet and play with. She flew on for hours like this. The wind and the snow suddenly stopped. Below she could see the bright light of a big town. It was London.
She flew down and landed on a pond. There was a little nest in the middle of the pond. She was pleased. She ate some pond grass and got in the nest. She was just going to sleep when she heard someone shouting,
«Miranda Duck, Miranda Duck!»
«Here I am!» she said, then jumped out of nest and swam to the bank of the pond. She saw a messenger boy there.
«Telegram for you,» said the boy.
She swam back to the nest.
Oh! She was happy. She opened it. It was from the girls and boys in Africa. They wished her good luck.
