Raven's Song

Raven's Song

A Poem by SongofSoulS
"

"I hear the Raven cry."

"

And so the raven cries

echoing through the grounds

I hear it from my bed

here as I lay

a sweet smile on my face

hands rest on my stomach

I hear the raven

he sits somewhere to my right

he cries

and cries

far into the night

My pillow is too stoney

So I rise to walk a bit

the grounds are so peaceful at this time

mists swirl about my legs

as i knock the dew from the blades

so serene

Terrified  to make a sound

as I glide through the grounds

The raven still crying

as night melts to morn

I lay back down

my pillow still stone

I read it yet again

my name

my birth

my death

"I hear the Raven cry"

And he does cry

As the Sun wakes the living

I hear the raven
he sits somewhere to my right
he cries
and cries
far into the night
My pillow is too stoney

I really liked this part, I can feel the weariness in this write.
So amazing, well written.
