Weaving heads dart, softly bent

Together shaping a lover’s heart,

To pluck in slow duet, grey feathers

Wet, ruby eyes pierce

Through the veil of thought, and,

In synchronicity upwards bend, rising

Two together these silky breasts

Above the clamour of the waves, and,

As feet in fury flutter on the water,

Two black striped thin and silently strong necks

Carrying two shapely, finely beaked heads,

Defying gravity arise in pride,

Wings slightly backwards bent,

And run together on the waters,

For a love that can only be

In a lifetime spent.
