The moment she saw me she flew up to the window! Then , as if in an aerial ballet she whirled upward and flew to a nearby tree. I told Bharati more about my experiences with her.

Blog #7 - Dec. 28, 2014 Juliette, the Swan Sonnet For a White Swan She befriended me, I so lacking in grace, Though out of her watery field she too, ungainly Mounted the dew-covered hill to receive my embrace. Approaching with snow-white breast bared willingly, Muttering low her sounds of deep content, As I held her close and ever so lightly stroked Her long and lithesome shape with her consent.
