Song of the Raven

A raven's heart of silver
is mine to keep for you.
It dwells alone, in hidden realms
of night and misted vale
where you and I did meet.

A raven's cry of heartbreak
is mine to give to you.
It cries alone, a song to sing
of starlit shores afar
where you and I once danced.

A raven's coat of darkness
is mine to cloak your dreams.
It flows and shimmers in the light
of dawning sunlight's kiss
where you and I once lay.

A raven's flight of yearning
is mine to show to you.
It soars above all earthly cares
and flies to seek the place
where you and I once stood.

A raven's life of searching
is mine to share with you.
It has no end or sorrow,
yet finds no rest, nor land
where you and I can dwell.

A raven's heart of silver
is mine to hold for you.
It dwells alone, in hidden realms
of night and misted vale
where you and I will meet.

Inge Meldgaard Claim this poet

Born in Denmark in 1953, I migrated to Australia with my family in 1957. After spending my school years in Yallourn, I moved to Melbourne in 1970 to attend Monash University. Having graduated with a science degree in 1975, I worked in various fields, such as youth work, teaching, politics (with a special interest in the natural environment), social research, community development, and finally, information technology. I have also completed two graduate diplomas: one in sociology and the other in information technology, both at Swinburne University. Now retired, my last position was as an IT Manager at Monash University. Gardening, art, poetry and writing have also been life-long interests.I have recently published my first book, 'The Cicada', which is a crime/mystery novel, set in Australia, four hundred years into the future.Website: ingemeldgaard.daportfolio.com more…
