THE WATER’S EDGE

POOR SWAN…NOT ALL CREATURES IN THE WATER ARE PRETTY ANYMORE!

THE WATER’S  EDGE

At the water’s edge I spy

A motionless form in repose…

In brackish water catching the eye,

It hears no one’s sobs.

White feathers ruffled but in place…

A place continually wet,

Do animals look on an angel’s face

When their life end time is set?
