The Tawny Owl

I saw this Tawny Owl today
He was roosting in a tree
He opened up his huge round eyes and
Peered straight down at me

He said” The day is blustery
I’m not a happy owl.
My feathers are in disarray
This wind just makes me scowl

As I sit here in this sheltered tree
I try to get some sleep
There’s a lady taking photos
And others come to peep

I know I’m rather handsome
With my lovely tawny gown
If I do not get some rest quite soon
I may put on a frown”

I took a few more photos
Then I went upon my way
The Tawny Owl went back to sleep
And rested through the day
