Swan, majestic being

who soars the heavenly blue sky.

Wings of white and silver

expansive as you fly.


White against the darkness

of ancient mystery

Swan are you an angel

or a spirit out of history?


I see you flying eastward

azure blue reflective eyes

Touching down upon the earth

your beauty crystalized.


I see you in my memory

graceful flying thing

Wind sweeping through your feathers

propelling you to take wing.


Angelic bird of mystery

you soar into my being.

Swan are you and angel

from heaven I am seeing?


No, your are just a reflection

of earthly beauty, love and grace

A shooting star of brilliant light

moving through time and space.


Katelyn Mariah, poet
