Song of the Ravens
Age Group: Adult
Raven, sing the blackness away
Keep that darkness at bay
Hover above me as I lay
Under your wings I stay
Tips of feather brush lightly
Shift my mind, if only slightly
Let the sun burn within brightly
Kept down deep and held tightly
And while the blackness creeps
The rest of them will sleep
In the otherworldly deep
Pray their souls to keep
Let the old heart die
Bygones, by and by
Let sleeping dogs lay
All those tears now dry
Scabbed and festered, now heal
My own cards left to deal
Another chance to feel
Another door revealed
Now soar upon your wings
Let go of petty things
Drums beat and bells ring
And listen as the Raven sings
