As Always of the Melancholy, The Raven

by rancelandstrong

Ebony wings block out the sun Ivory gleam on thy beak from the light of the Moon. Coal black eyes with a hint of white Flowing black feathers on thy breast. Dying racked of your caw.

The last is you of what anyone saw.

@bernardtwindwil Thank you so much for your words! I honestly had no idea about the Zuni tribe, but I do like this is able to tie into something so important. Again thank you!

Sydney is surely right about the graphic images. For the Zuni tribe of New Mexico, the raven is the trickster who encourages people and can change form to a human form. I think that you do justice to these beliefs with the moving lyrics of your poem. You are a wordsmith (my greatest compliment for writers). I love the way you turn back the expected order of the words to enhance their meaning. This poem is a celebration of that mystical bird.
