                           THE RAVEN'S OCCUPATION

       You, Raven-- perch with cocky snap upon my window ledge--
       Who has called you hence and bid you whisper out my name?
       Is there a reason your wings swept my open glass?
       Or, is it merely quirky Chance that tossed you in my life?
       -- A wayward bit of sun ignites your glossy head--
       You ignore the spotlight as you glance my way again
       Are you wary watching as I waste away the day
       Or are you counting errors as they tumble from my pen?

    Perhaps Ravens eat errors, and your Raven is waiting, vainly, for an occasional crumb... Terry (good poem)
