The Crow's Reply (Revised Version)


High in a tower,
Filled with woe,
A girl there dwells,
Who wishes to go,

She calls aloud,
For help to come,
A crow arrives,
To give her some,

The crow replies,
'I can't do better,
I cannot lie,
But you have a letter, '

'One of reprieve,
Do not cry,
For it gives relief,
You will not die, '

The letter reads:
'Sentence revoked,
Blameless of deeds,
Never to croak.',

'My mistake, Oh No!
This isn't your name,
You cannot go!
Y'stay in shame, '

'I have to leave,
I've letters to show,
I'll leave you to grieve,
And to dyin' slow.'

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
