Racecar Raven

A poem, by Cody (age 6)

Racecar Raven
on the roof

He appears
with a poof

His feathers, dark as night
guide him on his flight

Racecar Raven

During the springtime we had a large black bird visit our backyard feeders.  The boys and I fancied him to be a raven, although he most likely was just an ordinary black crow.  We named him Racecar Raven and Cody wrote this poem for him.  I thought it fitting to share it with you, on this day of All Hallows’ Eve .

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

    Wow, I am impressed! Looks like you have a little poet in the family! If he keeps that up, he is going to melt a girl’s heart someday. 🙂 Happy Halloween!

      I am pretty impressed with it too. He made up another one about Husband’s coffee brewing that I will have to share on a day when I cannot come up with my own words to post. 🙂 When he starts writing love poems – watch out! 😉

      I very much like the name they gave our large black feathered friend. We have not seen him at our feeders for several months now, I hope he is well.
