  1. I sent my true love 7 swans
    Sturdy, strong & stout
    Depressed about the feathered mess
    His mother threw him out

  2. Swan Lake Committee. 'On reflection, we feel black is the new black this season, so flattering on the neckline...' #W8PAdvent @debbiecoope

  3. The yin yang swan is graceful
    The yin yang swan just glides
    While one is on the surface
    One underwater hides

    @AlistairLane #w8padvent

  4. Seven swans swim on the mirror pond,
    Reflecting on the year just gone,
    Waiting for the new year to come.

  7. Don't look know but our evil septuplets just swanned up. #W8PAdvent @GeorgeKirk2

  8. As black as their hearts, they would glide forever on the lake that showed them what they once were. @MotherGoutte #w8padvent

  9. What fantastic and imaginative texts for my image. Thanks!


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
