Crows

This old omen poem came my way many years ago, and it prompted me to do some research into crows. Fascinating birds, they mate for life, nurture their young for a full year, and are reported to have “funerals” of a sort. My pots feature two crows mostly to wish the user or viewer joy.

“One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Tree for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for the secret
never to be told.”
