The swans on University Bay

The ice stretched out from shore to distant open water.
At the far edge
gleaming in the winter sun.
Calling to me.

I wanted to come close to the swans.
Perhaps I could walk out on the ice
but it looked too thin
So I was scared.
Stayed on the shore.
And walked away.

Today’s regret.
