What they would say is “Go away.
Leave our young in peace.
But should you dare, well, we’re prepared
To treat like bad geese.”
Photos: “Swans Looking at Me”, above, “Circles of Color Amid Fairy Green”, below linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme “say what you see”. The captions of the photos are me saying what I see in the photos and the poem imagines what I think those swans are saying to me.
Where they are is everywhere
Even where I’ll never be
And when I look on them there
They don’t care majestically.

Should the day bring dismay
In some ominous way
As the clouds fluff their white at the blue
I will say as we stray
Through the beauty of May
That my heart to this light will stay true.

Instead of coins, the shiny kind,
Give me trees to calm my mind.
Instead of gold or silver please
Remember me in forest breeze.

Although it’s obvious, I guess
And when my intuition gets it right
And doesn’t make a further mess
I guess that Spring will come tonight.

Winter is the annual night
With the outside covered white
Putting on fresh dreams so sleep
Opens wide new eyes to light.
Nighttime is too short to weep.
Memories of joy we keep
And refreshed with inner sight
We take our daytimes ever deep.

There’s time enough for trees to grow
And time for bunnies, too,
And time for hearts to beat and know
The good. May it be true.
