Crow in a Frozen Tree

There is a crow amongst an old bare tree Bereft of cold wind that blows in winter This ancient tree, so bare and surely free The bird is careful not to catch a splinter Softly sitting on the limb of the tree Bereft of cold wind that blows in winter Unlike the outside frigid cold we see By our deep breaths, unlike the bird crowing Softly sitting on the limb of the tree The bird looks like he’s dead, but I’m knowing He lives to breathe the bitter cold as me By our deep breaths, unlike the bird crowing I view the tree thinking that it could be A lot warmer place for the happy bird He lives to breathe the bitter cold as me This bird in a dormant tree looks absurd There is a crow amongst an old bare tree A lot warmer place for the happy bird This ancient tree, so bare and surely free

    that poor old crow, and yet we see so many of them in winter, I guess they must actually enjoy it! What made you think to do one on a crow in a tree? you are always thinking of so many different subjects to write about, Russell.

    Russell; this is beautiful. I can just picture the crow on the tree. You call it bare. I call it naked. I just love to see trees like that, because they show all their formation. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    A Crow in a Frozen Tree. Nicely done. The elements used in your poem made the ordinary appear extraordinary. Warm Smiles, Connie

    I have never attempted something so challenging... you did a superb job my friend. Seems like a difficult form to write! I WILL stick to quatrains! LOL
