happy birthday little raven


You used to do skate board tricks.

So I sent padded gloves,

Black leather to wrap up your wrists and around your fore arms.

You used to play guitar.

So I got you something electric

V shaped to play loud and hard.

You used to run through the reservoir woods.

So I went bringing you bottles of delicious new wine.

You used to like earl grey tea.

So I sent a porcelain teapot,

Green with creature faces from Ireland.

You used to worship the goddess.

So I gave you a dagger,

Rose wood handle, cow hide sheath –

Aged by hunting blood –

Stained by my own youth.
