I saw a child in a stroller – sitting and gazing
Her mother had stopped
and they were watching the White Swans
as we drove our car through the gate
of the beach side entrance.
We talked to the mother as that child gazed entranced
watching the graceful three Swans
Suddenly a big Mallard came too close to one of the females
The Big male Swan rose up and beat its wings as its
head and neck came quickly forward toward the Mallard.
The baby never flinched – just watched in awe as the Mallard
turned and swan away.
The mother somehow knew how the Swans just appeared overnight!
She said the state runs a wildlife management program
Where Swans are placed into a enviroment
conducive to their lives.
This is what happened here
They were placed and now they cruise from one end to the other
One half mile in one direction.
Our condo sits in the opposite direction of where we saw the mother.
I have seen them going back and forth all day long.
People are watching them paddle about –
some are feeding them bread
Sherry looked it up and it said this was okay
it was better if it were a bit soggy
also lettuce leaves
They graze the pond bottoms near the shore lines.
I have watched them swim toward this fountain
and all of a sudden they start flapping their huge wings
and a very loud noise erupts as they tread water
and take off in flight
never going much higher than 10 or 15 feet
above the water – to gracefully cruise into the
bay where we saw the mother and child.
For now they are here
I hope they remain
I hope they mate and hatch little ones
just as the little child gazed at their graceful
floating in the water.
I can imagine a line of little ones following these three.
WHEN SWANS COME FOR A VISIT!
