Storytime: The Ravens
A different kind of ode to these familiar birds in black
An ode to these clever but often misunderstood black birds.
My husband likes the ravens, I know that this is crazy, because I really always thought, that they were kind of lazy.
One day I started to see them, through his eyes, at least, and came to kind of like them, these funny black-winged beasts.
They circle over the mountain, the weather doesn’t matter, they make you feel that you can soar, above life’s busy clatter.
They sit in trees at 30 below, and smile from above, and wonder why we are huddled, keeping warm and snug.
So when my husband asks me, to keep leftovers by the door, and every morning he feeds them, I object no more!
