THE CHARISMATIC CROW

By Josie Whitehead

Charismatic Crow (The)

Look out upon a country scene
     And you’re bound to see a crow,
Related to the chough and jay
     And other birds you’ll know.

He's cousin to the raven too - 
     Though, not the raven’s size –
And also cousin to the jay
     Which may be a surprise.

Rooks and jackdaws – handsome birds -
      Sit high in my tall tree,
But for charisma and intelligence,
     The experts all agree . . . .

The crow must surely top the list,
      And I’ll not disagree.
Also this bird, not liked by all,
     Has cast his spell on me.
