Black raven


Lifeless wings twitch like an electric cable
Could it be it’s a message to me?
Black raven you fill up my skies…
Vampirism, beauty, its feathered bill sings to me.

A skull without eyes, soulfully, swallows me
A raven her wing, her shadow casts
A talon into me, almost too deep
I can hardly breathe.

A lifeless wing pulls out; even as it twirls
From the skies,
Black raven you are the ashes of a sun
A star a black hole into me!

Black raven you are the love I need.
Although there’s nearly no life left…
You came close to meaning everything…
To me!

Black raven, won’t you
Won’t you, won’t you
Black raven, fly again…

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
