THE RAVEN'S OCCUPATION

                           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?
