    Hi Terry,


    How are you today?

    Hope you're feeling better.

    Thanks for your review.

    This poem was a long time ago.

    It's the only competition I've won!

    Swans are so big when they fly.

    They have been a protected species in England for a long time.

    Thanks,

    Richard.

Beauty comes in many ways from greeting someone with a smile; to helping an older lady across the street; volunteering your time for a worthy cause or even making sick and lonely children/adults laugh.
In any case, as long as you see the truth and goodness in life as God would see and do.
Charlene

You aren't "meant" to respond in any particular way. You're a human being, not some mindless programmed robot. You saw something, it moved you deeply, and you wrote about it. It's as simple as that.

The first thing I thought of after having read your poem was that old saying, two's company but three's a crowd.

Excellent work. Best of luck to you in the contest. ~Dean

I love the picture. I love the poem. I love nature. I am my happiest when trying to live with nature. Study nature when you have lost your way. I am sure you will find an answer. Great work.

A touching and thought-provoking poem about your philosophy of life. It made me wish to know more. I wished the poem went on for several more stanzas. The beauty you observed, and the wish to be a part of it, raised so many questions in my mind. I do appreciate and enjoy the symbolism and the descriptive phrases. This is very nice.

To the author of "Three swans". I wonder why there were only three swans. Usually swans are in pairs.

This is a very deep thought for the day, "I should try To come alongside To dwell within This beauty Before I die." Very thought provoking!! Carole

Hello there,

There are some nice touches in this observational poem. Also it is a bit sad, for although there is great beauty, there is also isolation. I guess swans are not much different in relationships than us.

I did struggle to understand how it fitted with your philosophy on life. Perhaps the longing to be part of something else?

I also like your thoughtful observations on the significance of the scene
