in the pond's reflection, old wishes gleam

to the maiden fair, bathed in starlight

a chance encounter with a swan so white

by a poet's wile, or a soft dream's theme

the swan reveres her tendered face

as water reflections entwine and blend

a tale untold, if by daydreams penned

with feathers dipped in moonlit grace

in pages turned, her heart did find

a dactylic tale kept evermore

oh, feathery creature of story's lore

a swan enshrined in tales entwined

through castle's echoes, her tales retold

a silent covenant through notes unseen

between the maiden and the serene

a swan's enchantment, dreaming unfolds
