BooBoobook Owl


BooBookook Owl

doesn’t think twice

if she suddenly feels like

a meal of mice.


When she’s swooping about

you only feel the breeze

as she glides in and out

from her hollow in the trees.


Boobook Boobook

she calls through the night . . .

Boobook boobook


until it gets light.
