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?

    Paradoxical penning in black and white. Your imagination lifts on voluptuous wings like your crow. Superb verse. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
