The Loon's Crooning Moves

The Loon's Crooning Moves

"I loathe that I did not listen sooner,"ย 
Said the swan to the loon croonerย 
After he finished his popular ballad
Validating the rumor that he could sing
That talented loon would do just about anything
To impress the lissome swan
Although he was never considered a Don Juan,
His efforts went beyond the normal range
Of romancing with impressive flare
For his heart was all in there
To bring down the curtain on his love searching
He had seen the swan dance gracefully
Upon the golden pond
The first sign he thought their loveย 
Was destined to abscond
To beautiful places beyondย 

So the loon crooned and crooned,ย 
Singing of the moon
And how flowers tend to bloomย 
In their peak beauty by mid Juneย 
He sang of lovers from different worlds
Finally finding bliss
And how all would be revealedย 
If the swan would just give him a kiss
But as soon as he finished his songย 
With his best crooning moves
The swan swam away, after saying,ย 
"Enough of this!" ย 
Though the loon was jilted,ย 
He stood completely confusedย 
Yet infatuated by the swan's exiting ballet
And as far as I know, he is still crooning,ย 
Left in a stupor to this day

Yay!ย  I was not sure I should post this one just because it is not typical of my writes, but I was just in a funny mood and this silly scene came to me....and I just went with it...I could have gone on and on about what the loon sang about...but cut it short to not get to lengthy in my poem....I thought about that old movie, "On Golden Pond" with the loons calling and had to mention it was a golden pond in my poem...lol...Loons have a distinctive call and it is very wistful.....so I could see a loon crooning...lolย  I am so happy you found the humor....It was fun to create this one.ย  Kisses back to this guy I know.....xoย  ;)ย ย

Hi Charu....Thank you!ย  ;)ย  I was just letting my silliness come out and have some fun.....Maybe the loon will find love yet if he keeps on singing...Not sure why he is so determined the swan is the one for him, but to each his own...lol....I enjoyed just writing something relaxed and for humor....a change... I appreciate your support. xo ;)

Yes, I agree with all of the above. Excellent. It actuallyย reminds me of my own style, just better.

My Dear Cherie,

One's "Swan Song" can be so painful
After you have given all your best
The loon found out the hard way
Although his crooning was the best

.
His heart was in the right place
But just failed to find it's mate
Yet, the loon just keeps on crooning
Hoping her heart, some day to sate

All my love,
Larry xxxย

Lol....Poor loon....But you have to give him credit for trying and using what gifts he was born with to share.....You perfectly sum up his dilemma of not finding the right mate to listen to his love songs despite his talent....The right "loon" is out there for him...to each his own...lolย  I had fun writing this just to do something different.ย  Once again, your assessment in verses is perfect for the summation of my tale...Thanks for always being so supportive and fun with your responses...Much love to you and Linda... xo ;)ย

Thanks Greg!ย  You are right.....It is good to try different things and not be afraid to just be silly sometimes...lol....I was in a lighthearted mood when I just came up with this scenario.....and it was fun...I am so glad you liked it....I love animals and nature so it is easy to think of using them to bring out personality in situations that seem all too human...lolย  Bless you for reading and commenting.ย  xo ;)

HI Terry.....I let my strange sense of humor write this one....I like to use animals to express very human emotions sometimes...We can make fools of ourselves sometimes when we want love and attention...but it is worth the effort...as this loon obviously felt.ย  Bless you for your kind support. xo ;)
