Empty house –
A crow calls out
in the cold.

  1. I like a few things in this poem. The play on “crow calls” vs. “crow caws”. The way that the common phrase “out in the cold” is shifted so that “out” gets linked to “calls out”. The “empty house” makes me think of “inside” – later, I am “inside” in the cold. Very cool..
