My Song is a Paper Swan

Japanese girl surrounded by origami cranes.
My song is the paper swan I made

to carry a message of love so true.

I folded it carefully until it laid

in my hand, then went where willows grew

over a pond and set it by the edge.

As water sparkled, it floated free

past the lilies and clumps of sedge

until it came to rest beside a tree.

There it slowly sank without a trace,

but there rose on the wind an air

and more, of music of such grace

it spoke truly of my love so fair.
