"Lord of the Reedy River" as written by and Donovan Leitch....
Be-side of Sat In Your Lap single
Written by Donovan Leitch

I fell in love with a swan.
My eyes were filled with feathers,
He filled me with song,
In the reedy river,
In the reedy river.

I in my boat long hours,
He in his royal plumage--
I threw him some flowers,
In the reedy river,
In the reedy river.

Black was the night and starry.
I loosened off my garments
And let forth my hair,*
In the reedy river,
In the reedy river.

Sadly we mourned and sighed,
Whilst in evening twilight
Two swans glide and fly
In the reedy river,
In the reedy river,
("Two swans glide and fly")
In the reedy river.
("Two swans glide and fly")

I fell in love with a swan...

    General CommentAh,
    This does remind me of the sotry of Helen
    Zeus disgussed himself as a swan and had sex with Leda producing. Helen Of Troy, Clytemnestra, and Castor and Pollux

    Wikipedia sayed the swan raped her...but you know the truth...she wanted it.
