The Raven's Lover

The branches are clean and bare
Some find them creepy and cold
They do not understand what’s fair

I dwell among their beauty. She was bold
Alone among her clan.
Some find them creepy and cold

And when she accepted my love as a man
They heard my state and shunned her
Alone among her clan.

I brought her home, gave her gifts of fur
I showed her what I am
They heard my state and shunned her

I asked her to take me back to her world
No such yardbird e’re there could belong
I showed her what I am

My house is now empty of song
The branches are clean and bare
No such yardbird e’re there could belong
They do not understand what’s fair

I find it interesting. I had to look up "terzanelle" before reading this. I see you have fulfilled its requirements very well.

Thank you again. I am glad that I am reminding people of a uncommon genre of poetry. Just so you know, I am going to be spending a week working on each of these genres later this year, so don't worry, I will be puting a bit more of my own style once I am more comfortable with the form,
