The Owl

Perched up on top,

There is wisdom in his eyes,

Or is he just restless?

Awaiting his demise?


Down, down, under,

The action lies below,

Up there he stands,

Respected but alone,


Protects, informs, wide awake,

So restless his head begins to shake,

Gales ruffle his feathers,

But he battles through all weathers,


Morning, dawn, day,

The rest run wild,

The owl just slips away,


Wherever a companion lies,

The rest don't know,

Nether the less,

The owl goes alone,





The End
