Thy Raven

Thy Raven speaks again
To the wolf to the howl
To him he speaks of grandeur
Of long lonely nights howling
To the fair beauty of the moon
So very far from his lonely howl

Thy Ravens speaks again
To the screeching owl this time
Of lonely flights and tasty meals
To her he speaks of days long past
Of long flights in the pitch black of the night
Towards uncharted territory in darkest of nights
It's journey slowly comes to an end.

Thy Raven speaks once again
The roaring tiger it has spoken to
Of eager days as youth slowly fades
To him he speaks of patience and virtue
Traits well earned by the quick tempered
Mawing jaws and heavy purrs
A wildcat through and through
The shadows of death creep closer.

Thy Raven speaks one last time
To the brave brown bear of the rapids
Of the Kingship of the Salmons in the rapids
As its due from the hardships of its battle
With the rapid currents of the free flowing river
Puffing his brown chest to the world
Mighty and strength thy Raven speaks off
Muzzle colored with blood
Salmon's die happily.

Thy Raven speaks to one and all
Flowing from tree branch to leaflet
Spreading wisdom and belief
Through it's sincere words full of love
It sees all and it loves all

The wolf he gifts with the howling voice
Of which he shares his love with moon
The owl he gifts with wings
To soar high above the forest in search of freedom
The tiger he gifts with a colorful pelt
To stand out proud and mighty in the jungle floor
The brown bear he gifted with a proud chest
To bellow and groan with pleasure with each full meal

Thy Raven sees and hears all
Share and come you little children
Gather and come you sweet teens
Come and share you stressed out adults
Come and gather you old oldies of our world
Beat with beat thy Raven will tell you
Of how to erase this hate in your hearts
To humans it has gifted the keys to the brain

Thy Raven speaks once again
It always has spoken
Yet no one heeds its silent cries
So
Thy Raven speaks again
Sit....and listen.......It has always been the way.

Cool!

From the title I thought this a continuation of the other post "Thy Raven", but was pleasantly surprised to find it a peom of its own.

I love the imagery and underlying message.

Well done.

Thou art not alone in that. We ourselves were raised in with that tongue, though now we must truncate our words and use less elegant but far more modern means of language to communicate...
