Swans Silent Swam

a poem

Eleven white swans silent swam
skirting the surface
of tranquil waters.

Below them teemed hundreds of tadpoles,
filtering through the suspended murk
and darting past lily pad stems.

From above, amidst the outcropping
of glossy green pads,
a flower's white benediction
inspired of the setting.

the swans had through
their lightness of touch
already fully submersed.
