Poet’s Corner: Crows Everywhere


By Nancy Langman


I look out the window

There are crows everywhere

They’ve been there for days

Death is in the air

He’s been dying slowly

With anger and despair

I can barely watch him

Sadness explodes the air

Too young to die

Too much to give

What I would do

For him to still live

He’ll never see his kids

Grow up and graduate

Or see the longed for

Puppy in a crate

So many lost moments

So much of life missed

Never knowing when

It will be the last kiss
