Handsome Satan asks?


*[Swans feature strongly in mythology. In Greek mythology, the story of Leda and the Swan recounts that Helen of Troy was conceived in a union of Zeus disguised as a swan and Leda, Queen of Sparta. Other references in classical literature include the belief that upon death the otherwise silent Mute Swan would sing beautifully – hence the phrase swan song; as well as Juvenal's sarcastic reference to a good woman being a 'rare bird, as rare on earth as a black swan', from which we get the Latin phrase rara avis, rare bird. The Mute Swan is also one of the sacred birds of Apollo, whose associations stem both from the nature of the bird as a symbol of light as well as the notion of a 'swan song'. The god is often depicted riding a chariot pulled by or composed of swans in his ascension from Delos.]


How do you like my face
with the Sunglasses
or without that?
Definitely you'll say with glasses
as I cannot see the irregularity
of this puritanical World?
Thanks my brothers & Sisters!
*Swans segregate milk and water in a pond?

to the poet KrEEcH with gratitude!

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
