Little Night Owl

Oh little owl of the night
This ode is wrote for you
I hope it finds you safe and well
In everything you do
Residing in your little nest
As safe as safe can be
Sheltered from the outside world
And all its agony

Oh little owl of the night
With your hair of golden brown
And eyes that sparkle endlessly
Amidst your playful frown
Watching as the world goes by
Like an ever spinning wheel
Will you ride the carousel
And show just how you feel

Oh little owl of the night
You never seem to rest
Morning, noon and evening time
Pursuing every quest
Thinking of your many plans
And in your mind you search
For answers that will move you on
As you swing upon your perch

Oh little owl of the night
What pains your weary soul
Do you yearn a love of yesterday
That once made you so whole
Do you carry him within your heart
From this love will you be free
Are you resigned to love this boy
For all eternity

Oh little owl of the night
I wish you everything
That you will find real happiness
With the joy that it will bring
So whenever you feel lonely
Or whenever you feel blue
Remember that your one true love
Is still in love with you

  This is very sweet Frank, I really enjoyed reading it. I found myself wondering if it was written by a father to a daughter ar from home. Perhaps she ran away from home to test her wings, or maybe is away at school. Or it could be for a past love too,---I guess that's why I like it som much,--because you don't tell all,--and the reader can fill in their own blanks.

Your use of rhyme and repetition makes the poem flow along rhythmically and you keep the "little night owl" image fresh throughout with words like frown, perched, nest--

Thanks for submitting

  Delightful read! I think this "Little Owl" is not the feathered kind, but a "night owl" of the feminine person kind! Ah, but the poem is delightful, and fun to read. From the title, one expects a nature theme, and instead finds an energetic, caring, and delightful love poem!

Excellent, as all of your work tends to be!!
