Sickroom IV The Crow

In the early morning I get up,
Crying hoarsely on the corner of people’s house,
Annoyed, an unlucky omen they call me,
I can do anything but lower my voice to beg their favor!
By Hu Shi

In the late afternoon I get up,
Talking to myself silently in the corner of my house,
If I am a nut, they question me,
To suffer alone in my whispers is all I can do, ever.

A crow that needs to talk.
