Be Patient and Turn Up the Volume (One of Susan’s)

Listen carefully and you will hear
the Midnight Call of an Owl dear.
Calling for a mate
Calling from a tree
Wondering why Two-Legs
Is recording thee.
To listen again
And again and again
To that lonesome call
Claiming the skies from men.
Take to the wing
Take to the air
Its ears do detect
A mouse burrowing there.
Silent in flight
Flying silently at night
None remained hidden
From Owl’s wide-eyed stare.
