As the Crow flies


There are certain species in the crow family.
This entirely glossy black bird never sings.
Carrion crow feeds on grain and the house crow is a reputed scavenger.
Fish crow eats fish and all these species live in the handsome and dangerous Man-crow who sings at all but never flies?

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
