The Swan glides effortlessly across the River
The only sign, rings on the water that look as though the River shivers
Six cygnets by their side
Protecting their young, their eyes cast far and wide.
Fear for their young makes them angry
Makes them shriek and shrill
Don’t get too close they will bite you with their bill
On a good day though, you will see them, displaying their feathers magnificently
Wings out wide and neck held high
As they prepare to leave the waters and take to the sky
The Swan so full of grace
You really do enhance our space.
