Poetry Challenge: Swan and Ugly Duckling


(photo by sfgamchick)

I accepted Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge, the theme of the week being swans, in any aspect or variation. The poem is seven lines in the syllable pattern 1-2-3-4-3-2-1.

Here goes:

fairy tale
not in Swan Lake
ducks don’t like

  2. A minor point is there are no ducks in Swan Lake the ballet, unless you mean Swan Lake in Manitoba. That is what poetic license is for I guess. You do have a license don’t you? I like the photo of chocolate Willy Wonka and his chocolate duck–or is it a swan?
