O Lady Raven,
Your feathered body,
Sleek and shined,
In the glorious sun.
You watch from your post
The world beneath,
With eyes so keen
Like an eagle’s,
Watching his prey.

Your wisdom surpasses
All of the others’,
O Athena of birds.
You spread those
Magnificent wings of ebony,
And glide with the wind,
Your image,
A piece of night
In the blue sky.

Your call,
A battle cry.
Ready to fight
For your home, your family,
Your pride.
O daughter of Night,
How I respect you,
Your beauty, wisdom and majesty.
Fly, o goddess, to your throne,
And watch over your domain.
This is your land,
And we live with you.

Hey there, oudeis! I read your description and hello, you ARE a great writer. You tried hard and put a lot of thought into this and not for nothing, this is spectacular. I tend to keep away from non-rhyming poems, which is probably because I am jealous of the fact that I can only write poems that rhyme otherwise they aren't so good, but the point is I love this. I love the title! Something about the picture you chose just makes this poem darker. It's wicked! I love the 'O's' in here.. I'd like to include them in my poems eventually. I love your word choices, they all were such smart choices, they seem to fit in here so perfectly. Ravens are interesting symbols aren't they? Mystery, magic, omens being good and/or bad. Yeah, I really like the metaphors and symbols in here. The concept is good. I love this! Great job! I look forward to reading your future writings.

Loved the way you described the raven---a different perspective instead of associating the raven with death or despair.
