• The Raven knew,
    Far from his roost
    That the wolf was tried
    By songless truths

    He didn't mind
    When light would dim
    When his eyes played tricks
    And reality thinned

    He didn't flinch
    When her shadow shifts
    Or the ice that gripped
    Against every inch

    He didn't care,
    If spring would bloom
    Or death would loom
    He wouldn't run
    The Raven knew
