Black Crows Of Winter - Poem by Julie Dant

Gnarled Black Walnut trees
Bared of leaves
Stark against metal sky

Black crows of winter
Descend in low
Circular, lazy flight

Dark squirrel's nests
silhouetted in forked
wooden branches

Vee of Canadian geese
Wings beating frigid air
Wish I could follow.....

Black Crows of Winter
Seem to fill the sky
Wish I could surrender....

    Wonderful, simple imagery. Perhaps I’m more the exception but poems like this actually make me happy, I find nothing depressing in this poem at all.

    Oh, and I like the use of the word gnarled.

    There is a wispy feel to this one Julie, a gray feel of winters approach, melancholy by nature, very moving
    Love duncan X
