The Raven's Revenge

There she stands 
With a gun in her hand
Black tresses 
Flowing down
Touching the back
Of a long multi-tiered
Ruffled black gown
Surveying her kingdom
There in the mist
The beautiful Princess of death


The ravens that borrow 
her well-known name
Fly in a blackening sky
Piercing the night
With their screams of fright
Circling  the tomb where he lies


With one last look - she turns away
Remembering that fateful day
When she found him lying 
In the arms of another 
Sending her into  a rage


Hell has no fury 
like a women scorned
So all the prophets say
But that single tear
That falls from her eye
Knows she'll love him
Till the day---she dies


Written by:  Elaine George, Jan 17/11

For:               The contest - Among the Dead
Inspired by:  The Rambling poet and 
                     the picture that stirred my senses.

    I had only read a couple of the poems and wanted so badly to enter but...too many things were going on and didn't get to. I knew Constance would have a time selecting her winners. There is a long list of winners here. You should be so proud of your winning poem congratulations Lainie. Love, Carol
