The Hooded Crow

A hooded crow sat on an oak
And watched where the line of battle broke.

A hooded crow sat on an ash-
He hears the spears’ and the shields’ clash.

A hooded crow sat on a pine:
The long bows are bent, the swift arrows whine.

A hooded crow sat on an elm:
The broad sword batters the bright-plumed helm.

A hooded crow sat on a yew:
On Bosworth field lies a crimson dew.

A hooded crow sat on a thorn,
Where the crown of England had rolled, forlorn.
