Crow - Poem by Patricia Gale

Black as night
You sound above my window
Arriving at first light
Many a tale has been written for the crow
But none see you as I do

Your ravenish manner
The beauty you fail to behold
Your feathers black twitching as you sing
Telling of storys never told
But none see you as I do

You were not given colors of glory
Nor a song of beauty
Your presence is death in some stories
You shriek at me as if it was a call of duty
But none see as I do

    Not many people have written poems on this not so beautiful bird, but like you, I too have written one. The name of my poem is 'Thoughts Spun Around A Nest' and here are the first two stanzas:
    A crow is not the cutest thing to see,
    It hardly holds any fascination for me.
    Still I despise it not from my heart,
    As I find it clever, alert and smart.

    Just the other day I saw one of them,
    In search of dried leaves as it came,
    To my backyard's line of shedding trees,
    And pulled out yarns from dried out twigs.

    ''But none see you as I do' - you are very right. You have described it as no one else has done it before.
