Do Swans smile…?

Do Swans smile? …

Serenity the note of their bodies’ flow

Their secret song but none will know


The water’s black and moonbeam’s white

Become kin with them in the darkened night


Immaculate white, graceful form

Beauty with placid majesty born


To behold the sight of a Swan in waters adrift

Is for a rose to bloom amidst a heart’s mists


A sense of quiet joy, warmly does spring

Her presence in the world a smile does bring


She will move with winds and waters in grace

Though no smile may be seen on Her face


And the poem that is She will linger with whom ever the beholder

A Swan brings the smile of sweet lyric though not worn on Her.
