From the mind of a mild mannered maniac

RAVEN


RAVEN

Raven soared into the wintry sky
his destination undecided still
surveyed the earth spread out beneath his wings
carpeted in mother natures chill

O’er meadows lakes and forest Raven streaked
swift and so relentless was his flight
’til lanterns from a village far below
beckoned like a beacon in the night

A gentle bank into the whistling wind,
then Raven plunged and swooped down from on high
gracefully descending as sweetly as you please
alighting on a hedge-grove by and by

A barn owl called out curiously “Who, Who?”
Raven “Cawed” his neighbourly “Good day!”
Sunset’s shadows stretched across the land
Raven watched the daylight fade away.

  1. Nice word picture of a Raven. I always think of them as nasty predators and forget that they can be so graceful.

    • Thank You! Yes they may be predators, but Ravens are very graceful in flight. Thanks to a certain famous work by Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven has been seen by many as a symbol of super-natural darkness and foreboding.
