A poem, by Cody (age 6)
on the roof
with a poof
His feathers, dark as night
guide him on his flight
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!
I hope you all have a great time trick or treating!
Thank you – we had a wonderful time. We were even lucky with the weather and did not get rained on a bit.
That is a GREAT poem!!!
I kind of thought so but then I am a bit biased toward the author. 🙂
I will let him know you said so. 🙂
Cody – well done! Its spooky and dark – perfect for Halloween.
He “penned” it in May when Racecar Raven was a regular visitor to our feeders but it does make for a great Halloween poem, doesn’t it?
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! 😉
Nice poem! Racecar Raven is a very impressive name!
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.
