The fleeing swan

With wings tired from flying she arrives
Her eyes sore from the war she had been seeing
Kissed the day goodbye thinking of all the sad goodbyes
Unfortunately she had no choice but fleeing

When she woke up she saw a big lake
Filled with creatures, like ducks and geese
She wondered if coming here was a mistake
The only thing she hoped for was peace

The creatures in the lake sent her away
She didn’t belong in their lake
Because she was different she could not stay
But thinking of going back made her heart ache

Unsure of where to go she flew to the nearest river
To her suprise she saw swans she knew from home
The happiness of seeing them again made her shiver
Because the other swans made her feel home
