Gliding with grace

Gliding with grace while they feed in the bay
Their calls so haunting as they have their say
No matter what turmoil churns from below
Heads held high, it’s Grace that they show

The whump whump whump as their wings slap the bay
Sets the beat that will carry the rhythm of the day
As black as the night sky on a dark moon
With wing tips of white shining over the lagoon

Partnered for life, their example an inspiration
Often with the same gender, there is no separation
For love holds no bounds in the life of a Black Swan
Masters of the inner self, their struggles are gone

Watch as they reveal the true meaning of community
Aided by their own, regardless of the vicinity
Guided by the flow of the challenges of living life
They show how to live with grace, while avoiding strife
