What does the rook say? II

I’m here.

Goodnight –

Black-wing

Sharp-beak

Carrion-eater,

Goodnight –

Twist-claw

Chatter-box

Dark-flight

Shadow-thrower

Croak-throat

Crack-beak

Bright-eye

Goodnight,

Nest-builder

High-flyer

Harsh-crier

I’m here.

I wrote a very short poem a couple of days ago, imagining what my local rooks were saying to each other. Their evening conversation reminded me of the Waltons’ sign off. I’ve revisited their good-nights here, with almost kennings, in an almost-poem.
