Have you ever listened

as the raven flies overhead?

He beats his wings

with the whipping wind,

a sound piercing

the heart of tranquility.

He glides above treetops,

slicing the sky

like an ancient sword.

There is no terrible beauty like his.

Like an ancient sword

slicing the sky,

he glides above treetops—

the heart of tranquility.

A sound piercing

with the whipping wind,

he beats his wings.

As the raven flies overhead,

have you ever listened?
