Gray Face Crow

The noble  gray faced crow
The majestic flawless glow

Your the unusual Alpha male of the pack
With the big grey stripe on  your back

Your leap of fate off the trees 
Your gliding through the sky as I can see

Your weightless balance on the tree tips
Seeing you with my quivering lips

The spikes on your wings make you fly so high
Your the kite that glides in the pristine sky's

You only come out when the sun opens its shine
I wish you could be a creature of mine
I set in my stillness as I watch

You open your wings and they lock in place
You stop my time as I don't  feel the tocks go by  

I will wait for you and sit in place
Because I wont forget your awakening gray face

    Seldom does one see a poem written to the crow. He is the despised bird because of his thieving ways. Great job. Thank you for your kind words and hope you enjoy Poetry Soup for a long time. Love, Joyce
