as HC Andersen says "from ugly duckling come a Swane" - nice one John
strong, classic, ancient image with splendid use of 'from' (as opposed to 'of') for the echo
I like the way you broke this broke this up into three lines.I also agree with Ashi and HC Andersen. Reminds me I was involved with HCA2005 in Britain (Hans Christian Andersen Bicentennial celebrations).HC Andersen is probably one of the planet's greatest writers but English-language versions do't do his novels, stories and fables justice.Charles Dickens was in awe of this man, and HC probably inspired Dickens to be a fine performance artist of his own stories. all my best,Alan
Exquisite, John! I like this "swan period" of yours. ;-)
Just lovely! I am transported.
