A group of crows is called a "murder". The origin of the term is believed to be related with the old folklore. Crows, as a symbol, represent in most cultures an omen of darkness/death.
I find these birds overflowing with poetry, more so than a dove or any other bird, worldwide known for their poetic symbolism. While this poem collection won't be all about crows, their aesthetic will be sure to appear in every poem, even if tiny and barely visible, exploring everything I can find about ravens, crows and other species :>

seeing the seas
he muttered to himself
madness; the ravens
bound him in his speech

hears but doesn't see
sees but doesn't comprehend
senses are nothing but
thrown stones
never to be found again.

his sight altered,
but
whispers from both
left and right
guide him,
tell him
help him...

his strength?
absolute.
finger gestures
and decapitated horizons.

his knowledge?
absolute.
a lack of eyes proved
beneficial; a lack of ears?
beneficial as well.

his mercy?
questionable.
he is the vengeance
the madness, the crazy;
black scenery...
  








Below him, Ravana looked up sharply. Aru didn't think she'd ever be able to sympathize with a demon king, but she recognized his expression immediately. It said [i]Bro, that was NOT part of the plan. What are you doing?[/i]
