White Bird

Written by: Kelly McDonald

Elegant snowy 
Plumage pristine
Pale arched neck 
From dew drops gleam
Feathers like ancient 
Intricate lace
Silently gliding; 
Tiny purls cross the water’s face
Velvet warmth hovers 
Within hidden down
Delicate head poised 
With an invisible crown
Vast powerful wings 
Unfold and unfurl
Testing the morning air 
As cool waters swirl
About your buoyant graceful frame
Timeless sweet symphony 
Reflected in one refrain
