Crows Poem by C. P. Sharma


Rating: 4.6

Crafty crows are great in skill,
How with pebbles water jug fill?

You know they sit in curved rows,
Coz they are meant to be C rows.

They are as clever as seagull,
Stony looks keep vigilance full.

They also read your psyche sharp,
They come fast if them you hark.

If on the balcony a crow croaks,
It foretells a guest you will host.

From the far off branches of oak tree,
They also won't make your home dirty.

They fly away if thud sound you blow,
Farmers frighten them with scarecrow.

Harbingers of ancestral souls,
The metaphysics in them rolls.

Don't fear them, they do no harm,
Take it easy, you needn't alarm.

Note - It was written as rejoinder to poetess Nyla’s (on My Space) fear of crows.

Sir, I always enjoyed ur poems. Clean, lucid, fun, pun, rhyme, rhythm....all ingradients. This one is really a superb treatise(rather funny/serious) of crows. Like they bring news of visitrs, harbingers of our ancesters etc. all constitute this into a perfect, complete poem

Crows are such interesting creatures, I have always loved them from afar, the locals here shot at them for sport, being ignorant of curious and interesting nature. Thank you for sharing this many thanks Michael

Sir, a nice poem on crows! 10! In our Delhi sky I see no birds, Only crows are seen and scavenger birds! My Dwarka is a concrete jungle no doubt, I pray for a green cover as my shroud! - Composed to honour your poem! -Raj Nandy New Delhi

Great resume of the crow. Yes there is a certain eerie aura that we have bestowed upon this poor bird! Mark
