Swan yoga

DAY 37 (12 MAY) – Mute swan (Cygnus olor) (River Thames, Kingston)

… the swan / made a slow-motion / swan-storm of itself: / wings moved through wrong angles, / feathers stared, neck / forgot its bones / and a rotted figleaf of a foot / paddled in the air.

(from Preening Swan by Norman MacCaig)
