A Swan Song Reverie Poem by Sonya Florentino

A Swan Song Reverie

Rating: 4.8

She wears her hair up high
like a dancer
Could she be one?
Her neck long and lovely
graceful as a swan

The way she walks
she glides like she's on water
Never looks down
As if she knows that once she does
she'll never be found

''Never looked down As if she knew that once she does She'll never be found'' So she faced her dreams and fears...

Everything about this poem is graceful - the slender form and considered words; 'Giselle...ethereal/ And fragile...' - simply beautiful. S :)

As I read your poem it makes me think that the person you are describing could be a ballat dancer or a model possibly. I love the grace of swans & have written a poem called 'Two Swans in Love' (where they join together to form a heart with their necks close together) I will submit this one soon.
