For the Thursday photo prompt #writephotoswan: a piece of doggerel verse – in a sorta rhyming mode – and a short snippet of “something”.

golden was my love

golden was the river

golden was my love

I sailed  away

upon the back of a swan

till evening tide did come


then dark was the river

darker was my love

the swan

it sailed away

a golden trail begun


golden was the river

gone was my love

he sailed away

upon the swan

not I then the golden one


<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3


when love was pure and golden

you whispered ride with me

on swans that bear the light

for such love shall never tarnish

in evening-tide’s dark waters

under clouded moon-less skies
