Amid the jagged shadows

Written by: Geoffrey Brewer

THE RAVENS

“Amid the jagged shadows of mossy leafless boughs;”
A raven convocation croaks harsh judgement on our sin
No matter exculpation and our deeds it disavows
Their conscience incarnation claws the viscera within

Til confession and contrition bring the soul’s dark night to day
In bright winter morning sun the boughs stand clear and free of shade
Those black crows gather now in jaunty comic antic hay
On the grass our feet may tread freed from the prison that we made
