Swan – Image by KL Caley
A swan on the surface,
though your beauty only
Below the surface,
in the shadows
with a downy soft

A sky alight with your spirit.
The exact blue of your eyes.
The hue envelopes all.
You warm the fading light.
Your spirit here,
Beside me as I walk.
With me now,
Forever in my heart.

They say she waited forever. From the top of the tower you can see the entire valley. He said he would come back for her. She believed. So she waited.
Each day, she would climb the steps to the top of the tower. They told her she was mad. But she believed. So she waited.
Back then, you could see her in the top window, searching, searching, for her beloved. It was rumored that he died in battle. She would have none of their lies. She was told he would be back. She believed. So she waited.
The tower is empty now. But on cold clear nights, if you sit quietly at the base of the tower and listen; sometimes you can hear her weeping. She believed. So she waited.
