Roadside Discovery


A crow fell beside me today,

and I was quite surprised to find

that on his sooty feathers lay

my past regrets, in full display.

It was a burden he didn't mind

(though its weight had made him fall)

proudly showing off to me.

Staring at him, I tried to recall

each memory, but with a small

taunt, he flew before I could see.


A/N: The title sounds really, really familiar, I keep getting the feeling that I've plagiarized something... Please tell me if you know a poem that's really similar to this one!
