Crows Recognize Faces

January 28, 2020

Crows recognize faces--

they remember kindnesses bestowed

and any disgraces.

 

I remember faces—

the kindnesses bestowed,

the touching warm glow

from your many graces.

 

Crows will sound the alarm, 

a warning to teach their kin 

who would cause them harm.

 

But I’ve never not trusted you,

believe your every word.

I can’t wait to see you again

every time we bid adieu.

 

Crows remember those who

have shown them affection.

They’ll stay by their side,

I wish we could have that, too.

 

I’ll always remember that place,

but it wasn’t our time, 

and now I wish, unlike the crow, 

that I could forget your face.

 

But I don’t have that luxury

For like the crow, 

Your eyes, your face, your kindness 

will live on in my memory.
