Short Poems About Crows
1. “In the night, they call out to me
Their voices eerie, wild and free
Mystery surrounds their every move
Crows, the birds of death, magic and groove”

Their caws and croaks, a symphony of croup
With their shiny black feathers, they take flight
Crows, the masters of the sky, dark and bright”

They are often considered as wise
Their presence often a sign of change
Crows, the bird of prophecy, ominous and strange”

Their stories untold, their fate
Crows, the bird of magic and the unknown
Forever shrouded in mystery, forever flown”
Long Poems About Crows
1) “The Crow’s Lament”
In the dark of the night,
The crow takes flight,
With a caw and a cry,
He soars through the sky.
His wings are black,
Against the moon’s track,
His eyes are sharp,
As he searches for a hark.
He’s a creature of the night,
A symbol of dark delight,
But his heart is full of sorrow,
For the tomorrow, he’ll borrow.
2) “The Raven’s Call”
The raven’s call echoes through the trees,
A haunting sound that sends a shiver to the knees.
With feathers black as the abyss,
He watches over all with a cold, unfeeling bliss.
His beak is sharp, his talons strong,
A master of the sky, where he belongs.
But beneath his wings, a heart of stone,
For he’s forever alone.
3) “Crow’s Wisdom”
The crow sits atop the tree,
A wise old bird, as you can see.
With eyes that gleam like polished coal,
He sees the world, from young to old.
He speaks in riddles and in rhyme,
A creature of ancient time.
Listen well, for he has much to say,
The secrets of the universe, he’ll reveal today.
Let the crow be your guide,
Through the darkness, he’ll abide.
