The crows know that grave symbol they attend
Their sardonic minds perceive ironic message
Stark cross of stone; their memory transcends
The centuries, to day of death but presage
When blood of one who came to make us free
Anointed timber of a scaffold tree

Crows are creepy smart! Your poem explains eloquently the tension of this photograph.
