I Crow

A poem about grief and loss.

I crow for the piper
for the ferryman and page
I crow for the fuller and
the sullied, old sage
I crow for the tosher
the mudlark and the sweep
I crow for the cottar and
the watcher of the keep
I crow for the chandler
for the hayward and the reeve;
the summoner;
the headsman;
beggar, serf and thief
I crow for the gravedigger,
the sin eater too,
so when at last
your time has come
you’ll know
I crow
for you.

N Godsell has stared at blank white pages since the angsty teenage years, occasionally marring them with black scribbles and dark thoughts.
