There Was An Owl
There was an owl
The Owl In The Tree
I saw an owl
He sat in a tree.
He opened one eye
He winked at me.
I saw an owl up in a tree,
I looked at him, he looked at me;
I couldn't tell you of his size,
For all I saw were two big eyes;
As soon as I could make a dash,
Straight home I ran, quick as a flash!

The Owl, And The Wind
Oh, did you hear the wind last night
A-blowing right at you?
It sounded just as though it said,
The wind now has a playmate,
Just as most children do,
He sits up in a tree, and hoots,
"To-whoo, to-whit, to-whoo,"
So when you hear the owl and the wind
Just at the close of day,
They're calling to each other
To come out and play.

Two Baby Owls
Two baby owls sat in a tree,
And blinked because they could not see.
"The sun is shining bright," they said,
"So let's go home and go to bed."
A little squirrel, frisking near
The owls, were very quick to hear.
Said, he, "It's fine for work or play;
I'm glad the sun shines bright today."

If I were as wise
as many have said,
I wouldn't eat mice,
I'd be in my bed.
I'm not in my bed,
I'm prowling the skies,
so mice be aware...
I'm not all that wise.
