The beautiful artwork was done by As00 I wrote this for a contest at [link] for two unconnected things being connected by an object. I chose a crow and and violin being connected by their sorrowful song. Hope everyone likes Also this is 78 lines
Well, I do have quite an affinity to crows...So, I have to say, I like this more than I probably should.
The ending, if I do say so myself, was quite brillant. The idea of a poor crow, croaking the impersonation of a fallen singer just plucks my hearstrings into quite a lovely tune. I can see the obvious symbolism in this...in the sorrow of one in their lacking, and the misery of another in their expression. I think I've often felt like that crow, calling in self-dismay and ire, and carrying the notes of another until all that's left of me is raw and dull. It's quite wonderful...
But, I have to say, I would spice up the words a bit. "Sorrow" and "sing/song" among others are used a little too often for my taste, but not to where it's annoying.
I could never get a raven , I would always be scared it would begin to scream "Nevermore" (please tell me you know that reference) And my friend has a Fish Crow. It has pitch black feathers that are always ruffled up. It is so cool.
