But Mr. Poe...

But Mr. Poe.....

 

Poem and photo by Linda Shaw

Mr. Poe chose the raven

To remind us that someday

We are all destined to die

And slowly rot away

And yet the ravens in the graveyard

Are so full of life

They cavort and hop and squawk

In the wind and snow and ice

And so remind me also

Alone with the gravestones and their might

To laugh and love and live

Amidst all the strife
