Three Ravens at Dawn

    Three Ravens at Dawn

At dawn, a-cawing in the sky
Three ravens darkly passing by
As light illuminates from east-
A sign of hope for man and beast.

The first a-cawing hurries west
As if dark-driven, self-possessed
To never see the dawn's new light,
But catch and hide within dark night.

The second circles back on course
To reign in light's unbridled horse
A-cawing orders to the sun,
"Go back, go back to where you're from."

The third alights upon the ground,
There's much with others to be found,
With sparrows, finches, Steller's jays-
The gatherers of light-filled days.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
