Swan Tale - Poem by Frank E Gibbard

A night light shone
On a passing swan
Picked out by its beam
In a rubbish strewn stream
I paused and close observed
On a backdropp undeserved
How beauty can over ugliness
Be transcendent
And that in the land we share
If people care to care
How Man and Nature
Are truly co-dependant
