Silent Raven - Poem by Daniel Reurink

silently the raven cries
evermore, evermore, we all must die

to which we find a recluse time
nevermore, nevermore, all is sublime

to see, per chance, the third eye
all is more, all is more, the evening lies

in a bed of grass so ample
does no more, has no more, the candle

burns the night silently away
see no more, hear no more, the raven says

all in time focus the chime
as no more passes by in time

yet I see the song in death
breath no more, death is sore, in thy mind

as we walk, as we talk, in my find
to search and search thyne self

raven's cry in owlish help
the weary watcher wakes again

help my raven find a plan
help more, help some more, speak the truth

death, death, death the raven's noose
sing some more, live some more, as I cry

listen hear, listen hear, we all must die
