April Showers

While walking through a graveyard

I notice I am being followed

by three black crows,

they move from headstone to headstone

and when I stop

they line up in a row.

They never take their eyes off me

as I arrange some flowers,

not even when it starts to rain,

another one of April’s showers.

I know crows in a graveyard

is regarded as standard fair

but there’s something about

these birds calling out beware.

Are they a warning

of some unforeseen event

a sign from heaven

which a loved one has sent

or is it all in my mind

another fanciful illusion

which I have created

to add to my confusion.
