Who hoo's there?

Well, its a hoot to have you visit! My quill scribblings are merely a sprinkling of crafty dreams, a dash of vintage finds, and a heap of owl's tales... , Owly Byrd


The Rain-drops

To the great brown house where the flowerets lives,
            Came the rain with its tap, tap, tap! -
And whispered: "Violet, Snowdrop, Rose,
Your pretty eyes you must now unclose
            From your long, long wintry nap!" -
            Said the rain with its tap, tap, tap!

From the doors they peeped with a timid grace,
            Just to answer this tap, tap, tap!
Miss Snowdrop curtsied a sweet "Good day!"
Then all came nodding their heads so gay,
            And they said: "We've had our nap.
            Thank you, rain, for your tap, tap, tap!"
