September swan song

Whether in the early morning,

With fog and stripes of light;

Swan stripes.jpg

Or dressed in purple gauze

At first light;

Swanlake.jpg

And even winging away at sunset

On the tips of feathers —

September’s swan song is beautiful.

  7. We have a lake with egrets and other waterfowl, but never swans and never lavender skies. Lovely, Fiona!

  17. I’ve forgotten many things in the last few years, but I hope I never forget my first sight of wild swans on a lake in Alberta. I forget where, exactly, but there they were…magnificent creatures!
    Here’s more about ‘my’ swans.
