#NationalPoetryMonth Day 26: Ever More

Today we wander into the land of shadows, on this Day 26 of National Poetry Month.

FTF Raven

Ever More


Tap, tap, come the raven,

no, it is not him

He flies far above the path

as the light grows ever dim


Flee, flee, into the woods

ignore the raven’s caw

Hear the silent monster march

to the cavern in the maw


Shush, shush, quiet now

the raven circles here

The Faerie Queen calls for you

and all that you hold dear
