Jingle Books Poems: Winter Crows

December 21, 2020

By Richard H. Fay

A murder wings o’er skeletal trees,


pinions beating hard ‘gainst bitter winds.


Raucous mobs roost along barren boughs


stripped of all but a few frost-crisped leaves.


The gathered horde sings a rowdy song

to disturb this season’s morbid hush.

Then the scoundrels raise a harsher din


and rise into a threatening sky.


Ragged dark specks amongst the flurries


whirl in churning clouds o’er snowy hills.


Flocks search cold fields for man’s poor leavings,

hoping to feast on refuse and death.
