Dawn's Crows

A gaggle of crows,

gathering in the dawn's early mist

Endeavor to blow,

making beeline for their jubilant tryst.


Neither humble nor modest,

their early morning carousal about to begin;

Not drunken but noisy,

do babble and bluster much to my chagrin.


Their cackle and riot

form cluster to muster parade to their daily feast.

Whooping and boasting

revelry unhinged as seemed to an earthly bound beast.


To my wondering amusement

the affair in the heavenly trees seems to me

To vauntingly burst forth

to a gurgling tear and divert into swaggering glee


The light breaks forth smoothly

the waining of squawking whooping crows

Ever disbanding so swiftly

my amusement now done, yet where do they go?
