Like a swan

Like a swan
I tuck in my head,
Touching my nose
To my snow white shoulder

Here I rest
Amidst the thick grass
The thick waters
The thick sweet smell of earth

All is hush and I close my eyes
Like the Day closes her eyes
Like the ladies close their window curtains,
Gently, softly,
Like a swan

In the thick hush
In the thick thick dark
In sleep.
