Lenore + The 7 Ravens or Lenore + The 7 Crows or Mr. Poe Turns in his Grave

Lenore relaxed on her back porch basking in the last rays of the sun as the afternoon began to wane. As she sat a solitary crow landed on the railing, looked her in the eye and spoke.

Caw caw caw

Lenore Lenore Lenore

Nevermore nevermore nevermore

Shoo!! Shoo!!! She cried, flapping her hands ineffectively at the crow. The crow simply ruffled its feathers defiantly, repeated the call.

Caw caw caw

Lenore Lenore Lenore

Nevermore nevermore nevermore

With an answering caw, two more crows landed on either side of the first. With a quick glance at each other they began in chorus.

Caw caw caw

Lenore Lenore Lenore

Nevermore nevermore nevermore

Lenore tried to stand and force the crows off her railing but something in their beady little eyes made her hesitate and sit back.

Two more jet black crows landed and now the five chanted together,

Caw caw caw

Lenore Lenore Lenore

Nevermore nevermore nevermore

When two more arrived the magical number of seven crows sat in a row silently staring at Lenore. All she could do was stare back mesmerised. All at once they began to speak again.

Caw caw caw

Lenore Lenore Lenore

Nevermore nevermore nevermore

The silence broken she swept up off the chair and rushed at the crows yelling out

“You’re not even ravens!!! You’re just common crows!!!!!  Leave!! Leave!! Leave!!!”

They left. She danced around her porch in glee, tripped up, fell down the stairs, hit her head.

The crows came back and sat upon the railing for one last gloating caw.

Caw caw caw

Lenore Lenore Lenore

Nevermore nevermore nevermore
