A peacock flashes luxuriant plumage, intricate and rich.
It invites admiration, and has power to bewitch.
A swan is a humble creature, adorned in only white.
It radiates nobility as does the tranquil night.
A peacock preens and strikes a pose;
Its vibrant plumage glares like a rose.
A swan is pure and elegant as it glides across a lake;
its feet moving discreetly, barely a ripple in its wake.
A peacock flaunts a crown of gold, set with precious stones--
It gleams with vibrant colors in many different tones.
A swan bears a common crown embellished in no way--
It embodies pure modesty, with nothing to display.
Peacocks and swans are both birds, the most majestic of their race,
They both have feathers soft as velvet; they both exhibit grace.
Yet, though they’re quite admirable and grand beyond compare,
A swan conveys simplicity; a peacock depicts flair.
