he's only full of mice




Owl
by X.J. Kennedy

The diet of the owl is not
For delicate digestions.
He goes out on a limb to hoot
Unanswerable questions

And just because he winks like men
Who utter sage advice,
We think him full of wisdom when
He's only full of mice.

  2. That's a great poem, and makes one think that perhaps the men offering the advice aren't necessarily so sage after all! And it's a beautiful owl.
