Swan Boats in Boston Public Garden
(An Acrostic Poem)
Serene scene on water
Winsome swans glide
Attracting fascination
Nobly dignified
Bucolic background
Objet d'art to admire
Arcadian rhythm soothes
Tranquil cadence plays
Surreal moment mesmerizes
Illuminative waters delight
Nature beckons reflection
Botanical beauty of Boston
Old-world survives into new
Sublime recreational form
Transcends urban environment
Opalescent pond shimmers
Nostalgia flows bittersweet
Placid for a time
Untroubled by routine
Beyond scope of concerns
Limpid relaxation
Idyllic pastime
Captivating and magical




All  photo's were taken at the Boston Public Gardens....beautiful year round but especially in the spring...
