In the light of darkness,
Is sitting a crow,
Feasting its eye on what’s below.
It will target its prey,
It will swoop with speed
It will take it to its perch
It will complete the deed.
That was most birds do when their hungry.
Ravens and crows are the subject of unpleasant folklore and superstition in many countries. Black plumage and repelling habits make them perfect Halloween symbols.
An unkindness of ravens, and a murder of crows…these expressions suggest the birds are well suited to the dark side of life. Both have been considered birds of ill omen for centuries. They are large, uniformly black birds that look very similar.
