The Crow

By G.K. Thomas

I hear your repeated syllable
of loneliness and despair
come across this ploughed meadow
as I search for arrowheads.

Ancient bird,
watching from your pine perch,
the campfires
of those who brought us here
and their prayers
that went up like smoke in the wind
leaving only some stone intentions
to survive.
