A Sorrow of Crows.

December 19, 2010

(Eleven short poems about Corvus – the crow.)

Albino crow
blood-flecked snow.

Black snow
white crows
winter’s mirror.

White crow:
winter’s beauty

Raspberry ripple snow
a crow drags
its broken wing.

Wind whips
crows squabble
above my head.

Bell tolls
crows take flight.

Snow melts
crows caw
I weep.

Day’s blaze
now embers
crows take wing.

Walking beneath
shifting graphs
of feathered co-ordinates.

Crows in the sky
P51 Mustangs
in formation.

The cock crows
dawn twitches
crows take flight.

  1. A very nice tribute to the large passerine birds that form the genus Corvus in the family Corvidae.

  3. Each crow it seems a villain straight from Shakespeare,
    in their black-stockinged leg
