Crow Girl

Crow girl was to represent the 1950s. The children decided she had wooden hollow legs. She was a thief who hid stolen loot in her legs. No one ever dared ask about her childhood. Matt Black wrote two poems about her, on the same theme; both paints her as a lonely girl with a tragic past, I find the first below the saddest.

She is located near the Railway path.


By Matt Black (

likes storms

and lives in the bell-tower

with blackout eyes

and devil’s legs.

Her slim figure, disguised by baggy clothes

with pocket space for stolen goodies.

The villagers think she’s a witch

so she goes to the village in disguise

and dreams of being popular.

Her Mum and Dad died when she was young.

Now she is centuries old.


By Matt Black (

crouches like a cat

moves like a shadow,

looks out over the fields,

lonely as Billy Todd.

With her blackout eyes,s

he lives in St. Thomas’s belltowers,

eats spiders,

visits the village in disguise.

She enjoys scaring crows.

Don’t ask about her childhood!

She dreams of swimming pool

sand being normal.
