The swans, known for their beauty and grace, have a cult following of their own. They have inspired various love poems, phrases, and sayings. They have also inspired a beautiful ballet ‘Swan Lake’ by  Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. A swan is a symbol of love, music, beauty, and grace in many mythologies and cultures.

The swans mate for life. The monogamy in swan species has inspired many poets to pen down some of the most romantic words in the history and they still continue to do so. The swans form a heart shape by joining long necks as a mating ritual. Who said romance is dead?
