Black feathered companion

It flies on the wings of a raven
Black feathered companion
A caw from a branch
Wings by feet, my black feathered companion
On through the forest

A glint of the drops on a leaf
Pick but one at a time
Trail and backtrack, fragrant wreath
The material and the sublime

Black feathers, bitter voice
Up through the canopy
Ruffle up in the rain, windswept treetop, poise
Silence, survey
Maybe the greatest of all aspirations
Regardless of whether your wings
Will carry you up there tomorrow
Hoping tomorrow will be a better day

Skim the footsteps in a darker glen
Black feathered companion
As it turned out and until when
The woodcutter's axe is in the stump

Return the childhood days?
Consider, on the walk...
Black feathers, bitter voice
If I had wings I'd try to fly too
Listening to Cannibal Corpse and cutting trees with a chainsaw, now that's metal
