OWLS


A wise old owl sat on an oak
The more he saw, the lesser he spoke
The lesser he spoke, the more he heard
Why can't we all be like that bird?

If we all are like speechless owls
The world would be brighter and better
If we all are like speechless owls
Have silence, no noise, no chatter.

That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
