Swan Majesty-10"x7" watercolour

There at the mouth of the river as it drains into the basin is a house named Swan.

A quacking crowd parts, with regal measured steps her majesty presents herself.

There were three now one: her mate and off spring drowned, caught in fishing lines.

She is alone now, a swan among ducks, she has splendour and place, Queen.
