The Swan

By Scott Bailey © 2014

The swan
Majestic in its glide
They say underneath
Is chaos and panic
Frantic
I am not a swan
Nothing serene about me
Just majestic chaos

The World in a Book

By Scott Bailey © 2013

The world in a book
For my son
To show him the places
Across the seas
That he dreams of.
The colours,
The creatures,
The cultures and the clashes.
The world in a book in his hands
As one day
The world will be in his hands.
