Owl in the Courtyard

The weather was foul
When we saw an owl
Outside upon a light.

He stood watching us
While we excitedly fussed -
It wasn't even night!

With wide amber eyes
Looking so calm and wise
Mr. Owl kept us in his sight.

His picture we took
While he impassively looked -
It seemed nothing gave him a fright.

Next morning the light was bare
Our feathered visitor no longer there -
In the night Mr. Owl took flight.
