It was a cold summer day ice hung from the cemetery gates
And everyone was talking about the summer they’d had
As the crow flew down to the land of the dead.

“I have non”the crow said
“Then why come?” one asked “go home and don’t come back in till you have news for us”

By the time the crow landed everyone was gathered around him
“He has survived” the crow said
