Raven’s Curse

Raven: Not Your Standard Snowbird

Black as night from beak to toe,

Saddled with unholy glow…

Viewed in fear by those around,

Reasons near cannot be found…

Where death lies, I am drawn near,

My solemn sound, it brings no cheer…

Yet fear me not, I want to say,

Is not my fault, I’m made this way.


The poor raven, saddled with a spooky persona. Likened to heralds of doom, they just want to be loved like everyone else!

Prompted by the Word of the Day Challenge: Raven
