Owl Music

An owl crooned me to sleep

From the silver birch

At the end of the garden

A haunting song

No doubt a hunting song

That echoed in my dreams

Took me flying

In the night shadows

Through tall willows

Skimming the river

Where stars shiver

Voles and mice scatter

And night birds chatter

All on the wings

And the hoot of an owl
