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.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
