Owl Song


Who do you think has gone away
And won’t be back till a bright spring day?
Whoo-oo? Bluebird, that’s who.
Who do you think has plucked the leaves,
And whistles through the dry corn sheaves?
Whoo-oo? Autumn Wind, that’s who.
Who do you think has gone down deep
Into his hole for a winter’s sleep?
Whoo-oo? Chappy Chipmunk, that’s who.
Who do you think will be coming this way
With icy fingers for work and play?
Whoo-oo? Jack Frost, that’s who.
Who do you think likes autumn days
With their ruddy colors and quiet ways?
Whoo-oo? I do, that’s who!
