Upon the slow flowing river,
     Suddenly swans 
Scud quickly away.

From round the bend I gracefully glide,
     I am the queen of them all.

And quickly my king arrives.

The dance of love begins.
     We bob our heads, wings quivering,
     Necks entwined.
Unruffled snow-white plumage.

In time my eggs are hatched, 
     Cygnets so cute.
     How quick they grow.
          Now we are a royal family:
Suddenly swans.

A poetic masterpiece,, Victor. I think this one will be swimming gently in the winner's circle with a lei of Hawaiian flowers around her neck.
