The Birds

Birds like old buildings,
For the bird's eye view, I suppose.
If I were one of their flock,
I would sit on the old stones, too,
Perching bricks that could tell
One hundred year old tales.

This bird could tell a few tales...

A raven called "Grip," belonged to Charles Dickens
 This is the raven. I mean, the raven that inspired, "The Raven."
This bird belonged to Charles Dickens whom he wrote about in his story,
"Barnaby Rudge." Poe thought the bird should have been given a bigger part
in the book, apparently. Four years later, Poe wrote the poem.
