Cawing often detested!

Cawing in the trees
Not one to fly about but
medley of music

Sounds nuisance to the
ear but up in the skies
helped them communicate

Morbid sounds told of
bad omen in some cultures
Not to imitate

Often detested
Scavengers were useful if
numbers were controlled

For Chev's CARPE DIEM #566  -  crows

  2. I often wonder how crows came to be associated with bad news and bad omens.

    Too Early for Crows
