The Owl

by Inaya R., Age 10 , Grade 6, ST.JOSEPH CONVENT GIRLS S.S, SECONDARY SCHOOL, JABALPUR INDIA
Teacher: RUSKIN BOND

At night , when all is still ,
The forest's  sentinel
Glides silently across the hill
And perches in an old pine tree ,
A friendly presence his
No harm can come 
From night  bird on the prowl .
His cry is mellow ,
Much softer than a peackock's call.
Why  then this fears of owls
Calling in the night 
If men must  speak ,
Then owls must hoot - 
They have the right .
On me it casts no spell ;
Rather ,  it seems  to cry ,
'The night is good - all's well all's  well
