Owl astronaut burgeoning owl is a gift
You give to me give to you"

I've seen the horned owl drop from the oaks to panic
the rabbit in my neighbor's backyard."

his eyes a deeper yellow than the winter sun..."

~Duane Niatum, Snowy Owl Near Ocean Shores

 

Art by Karen Vesk





"What happened, so long ago
The very trees have forgotten?
In darkness, in loneliness,
Searching like an old man
Among old manuscripts,
Something you wish to know
Eludes you, and you ask
A question no one answers, for none can."

~Louise Driscoll, The Owl

 

Art by Eliza Sol






"While suns and moons of mood arise and wane,
Patience, the owl, considers wisdom now."

~Edward Davison, The Owl

But he won't. And not only that,
He's decided he will never be seen."

~Matthew Sweeney, The Owl

Art by Donna Bickley






"His velvet wing sweeps through the night:
With magic of his wondrous sight
He oversees his vast domain,
and king supreme of night doth reign."

~Elizabeth Sears Bates, What Sees the Owl

Art by Monique Morin Matson






"He sits on a limb
By night and by day,
And an eager assembly waits on him
To listen to what the wise bird may say."

~Anonymous, The Oracular Owl

Art by Penny Stewart






"Sweet Suffolk owl, so trimly dight
With feathers, like a lady bright;
Thou sing'st alone, sitting by night,
'Te whit! Te whoo!'

~Thomas Vauter, Sweet Suffolk Owl

Art by Robin Jayne






"The silent owl swoops,
Silhouette on silver moon,
Prey unsuspecting."

~Maria Williams, The Silent Owl
