This limerick is for the swan mother, who protected her cygnets from me, even though I wouldn’t have hurt them

Mother Swan

I met Mother swan on my way home

she with her cygnets ready to roam.

The moment  I was in view,

she impatiently  turned blue,

She stretched her neck down and drove me home.

The above is a true story, I was eight years old, going home after school. When I saw the swan with her cygnets, I had an eerie feeling, before I could go further she lowered her long neck and ran towards me, I was scared, walked backward, and took a different route home. I felt although not human, the Swan showed me how protective she is of her cygnets, just like a human mother. 🙂
