Corvus corax

Corvus corax, my old friend,
Upon my shoulders you've often been.
We've trod the roads of every world.
We've marched beneath your flag unfurled.

Hrafn was the name I called
In times of old when horses hauled.
Now horses laze without shame,
And Raven has become your name.

Hugin thought he knew it all;
Munin did remember the fall.
They would search the world for me,
Telling tales of what they'd see.

But days of yore are long past now;
To no master shall you bow.
A wandering mistral shall I be
Letting none know or see.

He who speaks to birds must hide.
Ancient skald roams far and wide.
The raven sings in the wood,
But who still knows he's understood?
