The Raven


Every night a raven visits me
its feathers dark as its future
every night a raven visits me
its eyes full of dreams
every night a raven visits me
whispering whispering
every night a raven visits me
telling tales of sorrow
every night a raven visits me
telling a forgotten memory
every night a raven visits me
its hart full of a wanting
every night a raven visits me
sharing words, that don`t want to be said
every night a raven visits me
every night i fly
my feathers dark as my past.

    Interesting take on Poe. Ravens do so inspire. Have you read my Peacock Solo?

    Sorry to point out that 'hart is deer' and 'heart is dear'. Typo? (Report) Reply

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
