Crow Poem

Oh my dear!
Look! Crows are here.
They are in the sky
and on the ground.
Crows left and right,
and all around.
They've even perched 
up in the tree.
What do they want?
I hope not me!
Dark avian spots
across my lawn.
They came this morning
just after dawn.
They peck then hop.
They caw and squawk.
One's even come
right up my walk.
I like the crows
I hope they'll stay.
I welcome them
on any day.

I love crows and we have a few of them around most of the time. Never as many as you at a time.

Lovely verse crows bring wisdom to us.

Clever birds. We have a family that nests nearby every year. I make sure they get our scraps that don't go to the compost pile. They're great watchdogs.

Loved this post-and the one you wrote before too! Sandra sent me over-cause she knows crows are my favorite birds : ) You got some really good photos of them-and I learned something new too!

Can I please send ours up to join yours. I don't hate crows but they do steal figs, apples and pears before they're really ripe. I'd rather they go somewhere else :-)

You had a regular crow family reunion there! Love the poem, very cute. We have a lot of crows here, too, and they get together in the woods across the road and raise quite a ruckus with any hawks or owls they corner.
