S w a n S i s t e r s

Swan      S wan   and   Swan      3   Sis  ters 

    Cygnus Sisters    one and all

I’ve always     felt in awe   of those big white birds

 that only         a few people  are allowed to    eat 

graceful as a swan       in        seasoning      

Swan Song    Sing Song        sixpence   

and confused         by   Phrases    like               geese are swans

geese are    N O T    swans

Swan Sisters
A S  a   c hild  I was  told swans   can break your arm

so  Those white slings kids wore  with  a broken  arm

Were  they   a   white  wing  about  to  sprout

the Swan

the    constellation Cygnus

The idiom       B Y THE sEA 

“up  the Swannee”  or       "down the swan"
