The OWL by Jennifer L. Scott #poetry

 


Welcome to the final video and blogpost for the year on The Daily Connoisseur. I wrote a Christmas poem called, The OWL, and had the vision to make it into an animated film. I do hope you enjoy it.



The Owl 
On Christmas Eve I saw him, 
The owl upon my ledge. 
His yellow eyes they sharpened, 
The stars inside them pledge. 

To convey certain wisdom, 
Of what I am not sure. 
We both just stared with held breath, 
A winter moment pure. 

Mistletoe and rustling wind, 
The owl called out to me. 
“Peace is all there is,” he said. 
Atop the sorrel tree. 

Presently a star did fall, 
The clouded moon was missed. 
Unexpected snowfall came, 
With snowflakes that I kissed. 

Opening my eyes I saw, 
The owl had flown away. 
Returned he to his warm bed 
Awaiting Christmas day. 


Thank you to Ruhama Azfar Rubai for creating the animation and to Evan M. Gallagher for editing the film.

It's interesting how "lovely" seems to be the word that comes to most of our minds after hearing your poem. :)
