The air was still
Nature waited with baited breath
A lonely crow perched atop the tree
Looked right, looked left and then at me

The blanket of silence was shattered by a hundred ’caws’
The lonely crow lay there still and motionless.

  1. I really like “Looked right, looked left and then at me” – the rhythm and rhyme flow really well, and it adds an extra layer of discomfort when this crow is killed (if I interpreted that right).
