crow

The crow carries my soul

To places in which I must go

Beyond the realms that I know

It holds back nothing to show

I love this crow

That feeds my soul

This silent black shadow

this swooping master of speak

this amazing seer into the deep

it calls us all

to show the way

if we remain faithful and stay

our dreams manifested become

easily to us

as they should

but still

if we ignore this creature beyond our sill

it will continue to try

without break or respite

it will strive

to make us all whole

to help us survive

until it is we die

and then return

the great gift given

by feeding that

which we have heeded

Leave your mark or go for a walk. Both sound pretty nice.
