A Poem - Three Crows

Three Crows


Three crows upon the tree,

one for you and one for me.


Three crows upon the tree.

They see further than you or me.


Three crows upon the tree,

where they've been, or where they'll be.


Three crows upon the tree.

They can know, not you, not me.


Three crows upon the tree.

Dark they are. Dark they'll be.


Three crows upon the tree,

feathers glistening, feathers free.


Three crows upon the tree,

one for you, one for me.


Three crows upon the tree;

but soon enough more there'll be.


Three crows upon the tree,

two we know, one we see.


Three crows upon the tree,

Maybe one for one joining "we"?

The crow is one of my favorite birds, too. The intelligence of the birds often leaves me in awe. I love the rhythm and sense of mystery in this poem.

Dear SES - Happy Valentine's Day, and may many, many more of them be yours to share with loved ones.

AliciaC - Thanks. We didn't even have crows in my part of Utah for about 20 of the last 25 years. Now we see small flocks of them. I guess they are as smart to have moved here as I was!

Loved your poetry about the three crows. We have two crows who are always flying about our garden. When I feed them they are happy when there are no food scraps they fly overhead and scream as loud as they can.

Naturally, this brought a smile to my face. Crows are highly intelligent and always show it. If one can befriend them, they will never forget you.

Dear Rasma and Deb - With God watching out for every sparrow, you know for sure He is fully aware of the ravens and crows! Have a great week and may they all have one, too.

Hi Damas ... the crow and the Ravine of the far north are real clowns... love them as they tease and mock and yet they are so smart...

Blessings from Canada

Crows are smarter than we often give them credit for. I enjoyed this poem, Demas.
