Or Perhaps a Night Owl


There was a mixed reception to the “Morning Poem”

(which I did not write) so I’ve scribbled this one quickly

in the hope of redemption, thanks a lot for the owl Bubba!!


Poem for night owls


I lay in bed one dark night,

Having only just turned in,

What I heard gave me a fright

For it was a fearful din.


I thought at first a train

Had somehow gotten lost,

The sound it shook my window pane,

And turned my blood to frost.


But no train sounded quite that sad,

More like a wolfs cruel howl ?

Wait….. more a hoot, that’s not so bad,

It’s only Bubba’s bloody owl !!!

Well, at least you didn't smash its head with the window.

There's a couple of owls that perch around here at night. It's so weird to hear them above my window.

Hi Peter ~~ Wow you still have IT.
I am glad you found the wolf's
howl would rhyme with owl.
And like Bubba said ~ the bird lived. I feel so much better
today, you wouldn't believe.
Cheers.
