The Ravens
We are ravens! Hear our warn­ing
in the bone-​​breaking silence!
We are the birds that stay. We know death.
We have seen it in the snowy moun­tain tops;
where clouds are held cap­tive in the arms of tall
pines and aspens. In our black­ness,
we can­not hide. We are brave! Hear our cry!
As long as we stay, men will live.
