Scary October 14

Here we are at the unholy month of October. I thought I would do a paranormal, witchy, unholy bunch of poems, some new and some old.

Don’t forget to check out Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman‘s plans for this month!

Today’s poem is another old one of mine. The Crow Queen.

The Crow Queen

Silently falls the snow

No words describe the sound of falling snow

Well, no words that I know. Lightly treads the crow queen. Blood red are her footprints like the petals of a rose.

I don’t know why they are so and neither do the crows!

She been to visit the grave of her human lover,

Who vowed to love her above all other.

Sadly he had lied

Mistreated her and her smallest freedom had denied.

He had paid for this with his life dying at the talons of his crow wife.

She would never forgive the human kind,

Never again trust a man, her trust had almost cost her mind.

Even so she felt grief’s pain Visited his grave again and again.

Her loving crows always accompanied her

Keeping her always in their care.

The humans knew of her visits

Drawing their plans they wished to capture her

To reek revenge and watch her die at their hands.

Yes we are a vengeful race,

We humans are two faced.

God forbid that they catch her as again our name they will disgrace.
