“ The Raven ” ~ a corvidae misread ~


Iniquitous stead

This potentate

Of noble head,

Out of domain

Unjustly said

Of mind or deed,

The raven

A corvidae misread,

Be perceived

In a distorted way,

A vulgar seed

Meant but infer

A common bird,

Tho be the raven,  

A regal creature

Of the heavens!
