Black Swan

Black swan,
Gilding on the river run,
Long agile neck,
A feathered nest,

Beneath the nights sky,
On a lake of silver reeds,
And crimson lights,
A black swan glides,
Reflecting on the tide,
Wings of silk,
A feathered nest,
Pleated and frilled,

One, of morning sun,
Wedding veil white,

One, of twilight, 
and ebony nights,

Ribbons of gracious ties,
Apollo bears witness,
To the swan’s final cries,
A mythos,
A mystical plum,
Bowed,
Two hearts swim on.

At the lake, with my daughter, we were greeted by these beautiful creatures.

At the lake, with my daughter, we were greeted by these beautiful creatures.
