THE SWAN

Unknown Author

Stately swan, so proud and white

Glistening in the morning light,

Come and tell me is it true

That a snow-white swan like you,

Guided by bright golden chains

In his beak for bridle reins,

Once upon a time from far

Fabled lands where fairies are

Brought a magic boat wherein

Rode the brave knight Lohengrin?

Stately swan, so proud and white

Glistening in the morning light,

If you only wore a gold

Harness, like that swan of old,

And if trailing in your wake

Sailing on the silver lake

Was a boat of magic and

You could float to fairy-land,

Then I'd jump in and begin

Traveling like Lohengrin!
