The Frolicking Swan
The swan, what all ugly ducklings aspire to be.
They’re admired by all.
The definition of beauty with its white plume and never with a feather out-of-place.
Ever so graceful in flight or swimming and gliding through the water.
Their heads held high, always aware of the admiring public.
Rarely do you see a swan frolicking in plain sight.
Moving excitedly, cheerfully, energetically playing in the water.
Not a care in the world.
A feather out-of-place, so be it.
Beauty comes from within, one’s soul, an aura illuminating and radiating one’s surroundings.
