Swooping Swallows

A Swarm of swooping swallows
Too fast to catch in flight
Feasted o’er the waters
A blur of teal and white

They perched upon the boxes
Neatly placed for them to nest
And flitted dampened feathers
As they grabbed a moments rest

Then returned to swiftly swooping
And maneuvering for a meal
With dips and dives and dances
A blur of white and teal
