Two Island Swans - Lyrics

Two island swans
They mated for life
And his faithful heart
Would not consider any other wife

(ronnie)
For three years of peaceful joy
Amid the rushes of the pond
Proud and gentle was the loving
Of the last two island swans.

And their love was like a circle
No beginning and no end
With his lady by his side
A treasure and best friend

And the pond was all so peaceful
In the rising of the sun
Young and free in the island breeze
Their life had just begun

'Til a dread day in November
When the searing cold did start
Stalked the hunter with his bow
Put an arrow through her heart

Loving friend come to my side
Let your feathers warm my pain
For I feel I will not spend
Another day with you again

And the cold wind blow
He was brave but he's laid low
By her body in the island mist
I saw him give her one last cold kiss
One last cold kiss

Of swans the people talk of
Only one in this day's tide
Though they brought him twenty ladies
He would take no other bride

They say that he will not move
From the place where she did fall
Once so proud he's beaten now
And he will not speak at all

And the cold wind blow
He was brave but he's laid low
By her body in the island mist
I saw him give her one last cold kiss,
One last cold kiss

Two island swans
They mated for life
And his faithful heart
Would not consider any other wife

And the cold wind blow
He was brave but he's laid low
By her body in the island mist
I saw him give her one last cold kiss,
One last cold kiss
