The Black Swan
By Sophy Chen

Peacefully, the moon
Is scattering on the arch bridge of white marble stone
With ripples sparkling
In center of lake, a full moon is bathing

Suddenly, a thump, thump…
While the water birds are slapping wings, with splashing water
Started up the layers of ripples…
The moon is rocking in the water
The nice arch bridge of white marble stone
Is falling on earth from The Palace of the Moon

There are some birds will fly to moon
Instinctively, I’m looking at the night skies
Peacefully, the heart of blue sea may be a moon
No birds, no winds, no clouds, no stars

Bowed my head, I see
Three black shiny water birds
Swimming out under the bridge casually
With their long necks
Straightened proudly
In the moonlight, the lake reflects their graceful images

Softly
I was over the arch bridge of white marble stone
To see a marble stone
With three big golden words carved The Black Swan

Peacefully, still the moon
Is scattering in the arch bridge of white marble stone
When I looked back they had
In the moon softly disappeared
