Crow: Death-ForceCrow, my crow,
For God's sake,
Don't sit on my head,
Don't sit on my shoulders,
Don't scratch my body with your death-force!
I don't want to die.
I don't want my dear ones to die
And fly away into the sky.
Don't darken my door
Until I have eaten
Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
