Where Doves Won't Fly

The Eddas speak of Odin's spies,
known as Memory and Thought.
Two ravens with guttural cries
winged form of a juggernaut.

The watchers spread their jet black wings
stalking man's mischievous ways.
Storytellers and minstrels sing
the legends of yesterdays.

Much later, the bird warns of other woes,
immortalized by Edgar Allan Poe.

I like this piece for its musicality and I learned about new forms and culture. It has allusions that invite investigations to resolve the mystery of symbols used resolved by your generous notes, Tinker.

Judi, I'll have to brush up on my classics -- I could definitely use some additional Cliff Notes here -- but the poem is polished and as such strikes my fancy. And the way you integrate literature from the multiple eras is pretty slick.

The title has a distinctly modern feel. Altogether, an exciting blend.
