Swan Days


By Andrea Warren

The white color of innocence drips
From my silky transcended span
As the water ripples an outline
Of my graceful refined body

Tenderly I reach back to guide
My precious little ones
Anticipating our wild surroundings
And their tendency to playfully wander

Many hues dance about our picturesque life
From the blue and white of the plush sky
To the green banks of outstretched fields
With flowers dressed in pinks, yellows, and reds

Even the nearby cobble bridge
And further yet the cottage on the hill
Provide serene atmosphere
Of our lazy summer swims
