The story:  Creekwood Crow is the story of young Margery that instead of taking the quiet counsel of the wise crow chooses to always look for something better–regardless of the cost. Once she’s symbolically lost everything (her shoes), she then tries to strike a Midnight Compromise.

LYRICS:

Snared by the glow, blackest of feathers
The Creekwood Crow to silence is tethered
Drawn to secrets twixt the darkest down
Sleepless sequence, counsel renowned
Ask me no questions, I’ll tell you no lies
The Creekwood crow, midnight compromise

Margery meant well as the water did swell
While wading she was in best Sunday shoes
Reaching for the sky, her lace did untie
But just gave a pause to the loss of a boot
The crow smiled sly winging toward the truth
As he exclaimed, “Better one than two”

The Creekwood Crow has seeds to sow
Words better heard than said
He’ll lure you in, all secrets, no sin
Words better heard than read

As always the case, Margery gave chase
Learning nothing from the loss of a shoe
Better won than lost, not signals crossed
Sometimes a shoe is not just a shoe
Reaching for the moss, another shoe lost
The crow aloft wonders, “At what cost?”

Snared by the glow, blackest of feathers
The Creekwood Crow to silence is tethered
Drawn to secrets twixt the darkest down
Sleepless sequence, counsel renowned
Ask me no questions, I’ll tell you no lies
The Creekwood crow, midnight compromise
Ask me no questions, I’ll tell you no lies

The Creekwood crow, midnight compromise

The Creekwood Crow has seeds to sow
Words better heard than said
He’ll lure you in, all secrets, no sin
Words better heard than read
