Dreams of the Raven
-----------------------

A black bird sits on my window sill
and talks to me at night
the shimmer of its feathers glow
from the touch of the full moons light
A message from the dreams of time
When the Ravens eyes met mine.
They tell of places hidden deep,
and emotions that, forever keep
in the recesses of the mind.
Though locked away
from the fragile heart,
they'll wisper in the dark
and dance,
in the dreams of the Raven.

Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

HaleyJa-

Beautiful ... and sound like the
inspiration for it is also beautiful.
How wonderful to be touched by someone
or something that stirs the inkwell
of your poets heart and pen.
