here he comes the chattering crow
moored moments on the rim of my umbrella
stretching the fugacious aerial shade
perfectly sheer blue forever dress
anchors sweetly to the incarnate soft post
eyes open i am the scarecrow

wingless invisible stories chance upon the scarecrow
aphonic patterns floating free nestled to the feathered crow
expressions written handless notes waiting to post
arriving stampless coming for comfort find forever umbrella
attired with distinction to my every day blue dress
voiceless visions live easy under the simple surrendering shade

brilliant bright notes whisper out in the open shade
thousands of thoughts tell all to the forever scarecrow
not much known keenly aware softly spoken in the folds of dress
here he perches and stays awhile unloading the black caring crow
daily drifts hushed breezes caressing care puissant umbrella
strength in numbers standing strong alone the approachable post

determined desire resist not the tone lean upon the forever post
sweet scent sailing unseen unheard serene shade
picking places restful dwellings right here umbrella
patiently peaceful noting the days precious scarecrow
speaking specifically to only one the courier clawed crow
tattered tongues sealed in sorrow lie quiet in dress

kaleidoscope comments color the gauzy blue dress
lightly lifted sentiment inscribed threads linger harkens the post
often he comes heavy hearted hearing all the quiet crow
lacking less taking more listening forever shade
spotless humble beginnings enduring scarecrow
dawns the day holding court beneath the hushed umbrella

mindful of untold tasks waiting to behold beneath the umbrella
faithful few numbered unending who would have guessed the dress
arms extended beyond the horizon unhurried sustaining scarecrow
fields afar full of trees lives one lone post
spreading tomorrow’s light the subtle shade
careful and kind beyond recognition forever the crow

two tongues talking the crow and umbrella
provide the secure shade behold the dress
placed perfect the post hears the speaking scarecrow

crow

http://www.montana.edu/wwwmor/photoarc/byron/byron-index.html

searching the margin
the quiet valley awakens
revealing the crow story

recognizing the spirits
agitation beat in the soles
of her soft scud moccasins

vigilant steps overhear
chantings once held back
sustained on the back of
the great thunderbird

songs sung long ago
in the sacred fires burning
nestled in the pole of beginnings

inflicted to obey
the messenger
volunteered herself
to the way of the past
