Owl Quotes – Part 3
A wise old owl nursery rhyme / poem
A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke

The Judge Is Like The Owl
The Judge is like the Owl –
I’ve heard my Father tell –
And Owls do build in Oaks –
So here’s an Amber Sill –
That slanted in my Path –
When going to the Barn –
And if it serve You for a House –
Itself is not in vain –
About the price — ’tis small –
I only ask a Tune
At Midnight — Let the Owl select
His favorite Refrain.
-by Emily Dickinson
