The Mythical Crone who sings over the bones is the one who reclaims all that has been abandoned or forgotten. 

In myth & majik, a dead bird is typically a symbol of disillusionment and the loss of innocence and/or of transformation from the naive to the wiser. 

Holding the bones of a little bird is a symbolic gesture of the deeper knowing that comes with age.

“When we sing over bone
we don’t sing alone
and the ancestors' wisdom is shown.
Intuition that’s known
in the bone
of a crone
welcomes all that’s forgotten
back home.”
