A funeral song inspired by "Even the ravens mourn over you" by Peter Ostroushko.
Your body there lies cold and pale

The winds have ceased to moan and wail

And then a sound heard from on high

The Raven’s host has gathered nigh

They gather round-the raised stone mound

And from the mob there comes a sound

A single word they cry, they speak-a single cry from mouth, from beak

They’re mourning for, what she once gave

They’re mourning her, the fair queen Maeve
