Crack Crows' Caws

Here in India, we assign various meanings to a crow' s caw. Sometime it gives hints of a visitor coming to one's dwelling, while other times, it may be signal of bad omens like disasters or death. At festivities, it is regarded pious to give special food to crows.

This is a tautogram, a kind of poem in which each word begins with the same letter. This poem is the result of churning of a thought about the cawing of crows. I, sometime, wonder what all these creatures utter in their language, which is a simple monotonous sound to us.

Around these thoughts, I have tried to weave this poem. This is my fifth alphabet poem.
