The Ravens Of Twenty Nine Palms - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Have you ever seen a raven?
It is an immense bird.
Black as a stygian night,
Fearless and inspiring fear.
The ravens of Twenty Nine Palms,
Have huge wing spans,
Three feet at least.
I saw three ravens,
Sitting on a telephone pole.
A huge hawk came flying over,
Very menacingly.
The ravens held their ground,
And chased the hawk away.
Their raucous calls,
Filled the air around my home,
In Twenty Nine Palms.
All over the desert,
You can hear their calls,
And see their black bodies,
Silhouetted against the desert sky.
No wonder,
That our dear Edgar,
Chose him as his visitor,
Once upon a midnight dreary.
