Foreboding (poem)





Hey old crow,

What do you know?

Can you hear the climate change?

Can you smell the wind?

Do you see the frost form

In the clear sky?


Do you call the changes

As bells that toll?

Does your voice caul


                … Beware

                                … Beware!


Will your great black beak break

On frozen pond

Will your talons claw and rend

The road kill?


Or will your black feathers

Drift in their turn

Like snow?
