avian nuptials



Hired loon

soloist tunes

to turtledoves

in Central Park

for Cygnus pair

will wed today

on the island

at the pond.


Lovely bride

a sleek swan

dressed in black

red-lipsticked bill

diamond pierced

with pearl strand

encircling elegant

long curved neck.


Graceful groom

in striking white

fixates dark eyes

trumpeting love

as he glides to

her side while

fine feathered

entourage coos.
