Feeding the Ravens

The dead lie in silence
upon the cold ground
and the calling of ravens
is all of the sound.
When the heroes have fallen
the birds always know --
and the hunger of ravens
their honor shall show.

The black bird of Odin
who blesses the slain,
shall rise filled from the field
where the heroes have lain:
Where the valkyrie bears menīs souls
upon her swift steed,
the ravens shall thank them,
as they wing down - to feed.

Đ Paul Edwin Zimmer
(1943-17 October 1997)
