Symbol of Love

gliding gently across calm water
a pair of swans float gracefully 
peacefully moving as one
beautiful elegance 
river's white roses 
they kiss to form
the symbol
of deep

The Mute Swan: The mute swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan and a member of the waterfowl family Anatidae. It is native to much of Eurasia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa. It is an introduced species in North America â?? home to the largest populations outside of its native range â?? with additional smaller introductions in Australasia and southern Africa. The name 'mute' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species.[2][3][4] Measuring 125 to 170 cm (49 to 67 in) in length, this large swan is wholly white in plumage with an orange beak bordered with black. It is recognisable by its pronounced knob atop the beak, which is larger in males.
