Three crows stroll along
the dirt road: adolescents
with somewhere to go.

Somewhere important
no doubt, but they let you know
they’re in no hurry.

Sunlight sheens their backs
& they are comfortable
muttering their dark joy.

  1. not you’re talking and the crows are walking
    it’s a great poem
    there has been no nature poet america has given us since hildegarde flanner. here poems from the 1920′s to the late 1980′s were unrivaled until you came along. nobody paid attention then. your gift will be given like hers freely and without a thankyou. but it is a gift. and we few thank you.
