Quote: Eleanor Roosevelt Poem: Carrion News

Eleanor Roosevelt, who said, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."


Carrion News


The word from the curb was
Crow had been snatched
By eagle; taloned through.
The sky dripped unseen red
As black wings made eagle flee.

The crow on the curb
Who told me this story
Verified what I had seen.
Crow had to tell someone
Part of crow’s trickster nature.

Like an anxious mother waiting
Her child’s return crow
Pecks the ground over and over.
