O Great White Owl

O Great White Owl
master of this quiet island
may I come for a time?

Will you have your minions
make me a nest
of soft white down?

May I rest from the world and its ways
for a week? or more days?
For I am weary now and longing to see you.

May I have a long summer day
with you and your lady?
May I look at your little ones
as they look from the tall tree
May I walk by the stream?
Dear old friend of the white lands
will you welcome me?
