Not everyone. I have no lack of faith that Ansteorra will prevail, however.
A cheerful and bright day, a day that heralded the oncoming splendors of
spring, this is what I saw from my window in the morning hours. Yet the sight
that greeted me outside my door gave me pause.
They were everywhere. Crows in the trees, crows on the fence, crows strutting
about in the grass, their inky legs glistening with the dew. Crows preening,
crows calling, crows watching.
As I stood on my humble porch, stunned at their number and fearful of their
stare, an unseen signal was given. In response to some silent trumpet to
action, they rose into the sky together, matching wingbeats with harsh cries
of enthusiasm. As they gained the skies, their number increased until the
heights were speckled with them, until the heavens were blotched with
blackness. Armies of crows, a nation of dark omens, they swam through the
early dawn to the east, into the face of the unsuspecting sun.
Many a poet has wondered at the terrible deeds of crows. Many a midwife has
feared their intent. Even kings are known to dream of their motivation while
sweating in their beds and clenching their pillows in terror.
I, however, suffer no such uncertainty. The answer seems simple enough.
These were Ansteorran crows, winging east with a purpose.
