A Shining Owl Moon

“When you go owling you don’t need words or warm or anything but hope. That’s what Pa says. The kind of hope that flies on silent wings under a shining Owl Moon.” ~ Excerpt from Owl Moon by Jane Yolen.

The King of the night

So, when the night falls, and dogs do howl,
Sing, ho! for the reign of the Hornéd Owl!
We know not alway
Who are kings by day,
But the King of the night is the bold brown Owl!
~ Bryan Waller Procter.
