One Single Impression: A Fool's Paradise

From Mystic Seaport



The world ends and begins
With light that has taken the shape
Of a swan gliding toward me
On a quiet autumn river.

The swan and I:
Everything.


One Single Impression

  6. Enchanting and intriguing. Isn't it amazing to consider how aggressive swans apparently are? Always the picture of calm...LOVE IT!

  7. If it is a Fool's Paradise to be one with a swan I could go there. I would rather be with a Trumpeter Swan.
