Leda and the Swan

By Elvira

The Swan                                 Flies                             the sky:
Wings                          spread:
Clouds                         seeming:                     fish scales

Flying
Flying
Destination:
Mortal Woman.
He
lusted                          after her
as Solomon                                                                  after Bathsheba –
only Rape
and                                                                  NOT Submission
was                              the Act of
Coupling.
NO LOVE.
VIOLENCE.

Leda
becoming                    unwilling Mother
to TROY’S Destruction.
The Flap of Wings
the Bite of the Beak
brings                          the
Wrath of
Sparta
and Hector’s mutilation

How little it                             takes                            to alter Life!
“the Road not taken”
Safeness
disguised
what could have                                                          BEEN
to                                 the Hardness of
What                                       IS.

HE                                            gives                            FREE WILL –
(or, so we        think)
BUT –
we MUST                                 TRUST
the HE
is with
us.

  1. Mother of Four;
    Queens, and
    Kings of
    the Night.
    No Choice                                HAD                             she.
    We must                                  be                                EVERREADY
    and      EVER
    BELIEVING       in
    he, he, and
    HE.
