15. Calm down - It's Just A Little Ornithology
To a sparrow, a little brown thing
Said a raven - “How sweetly you sing.
Let’s nestle together -
Just raise your tail feather
And I’ll take you, under my wing”
The sparrow replied to the raven
As she settled in his feathered haven
“I thought that you would
Like a kiss ‘neath your hood…”
(This leads to two birds, misbehavin’...)
Addendum: I totally forgot to add my footnote...that Morrigu, the Great Queen of the Gaelic War Goddesses used to appear as a hoodie crow to incite especially valiant warriors to reckless, heroic deeds... so giving the raven a hood is not AU!
There follows here dear Fileg's rant
"For ornithology surely you can't
Hold me as a tease:
It's the birds and the bees
(and the Rangers) who cause you to pant!"
The bees know that garden and bower
holds treasure, hid deep in each flower
as the hood of the raven
hides stubble unshaven -
reveal it, and I’m in his power
