    Red face Raven Wind

    Hi, my name is Tuana from Turkey. I am currently studying on verse translation for my graduation essay. But I have a problem with one the poems I am translating. The poem belongs to Marc Beaudin and the title of the poem is "Raven Wind and Her"...
    The problem is what "raven wind" refers to.. I mean, does it have a special meaning? Is it a metaphore?? Is it a name of a place, or a bird name, or a kind of wind..??
    I know the meanings of "raven" and "wind", but what does "raven wind" mean? :S :S
    I'm so stuck, please help me.. thnxx

    Re: Raven Wind

    Help us here.

    You have to give us more than two words. Raven is certainly a metaphor, and wind might be, too. This is not an idiom, it's poetry. So we need to see at least some of the poem.

    Perhaps the best thing to do is ask the poet: Marc (Marc Beaudin) |
