Swan Song

In a Swan Song

 Surrender is the only answer

to a swan song.

It holds a venerable cadence

that is impossible to disregard-

even in the everything

of the struggles

before

its crooning reverberations

echoed

relentlessly

against

the bone guardians

surrounding

the heart-

now helpless to its regal landing

of one returning

home

to a familiar

unrecognized

before its ephemeral sound

woke the soul.
