Like a swan dancing across the lake

With the wind behind you

Gracefully as you go,

Across the ice not losing on step---

Not one step in time you miss

Gliding across the ice

On winter's wings a flying high

Then, lightly touching the sky upward

Landing gracefully on the ice

Lightly touching the ground

In such beauty and grace.

Like a swan dancing across the lake

I watched you in amazement

And each time you leap in the air

My heart skips beat or two

As amazing you are a sight to see

In grace and beauty.

As the moon shines up above

And the stars shine brightly

Over the lake

Dancing away until morning rising

And will be there to watch you dance with the wind.
