Barn Owl 1

Barn Owl by John Oates

 

Silently, through the air, under silver moonlight.

Barn owl, swooping low, searching for its food tonight.

 

Brown field mouse, keeping still, while the hunter flies above.

Barn owl, swooping low, little mouse its fav'rite grub.

Tiger Tiger by J. Oates

Tiger, tiger look at me.
Little monkey in this tree.
Down below your stripes I see.
Tiger, tiger look at me.

I can see you in the tree.
Swinging high so fancy free.
Come down here and play with me.
I am ready for my tea.
