SWAN SONG

[noun]

in ancient Greek: κύκνειον ᾆσμα - a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort, or performance given just before death or retirement.; the last act or manifestation of someone or something; farewell appearance. The phrase refers to an ancient belief that swans (Cygnus spp.) sing a beautiful song in the moment just before death, having been silent (or alternatively, not so musical) during most of their lifetime.
