A Wise Old Owl
Author Unknown


A wise old owl lived in an oak:
The more he saw, the less he spoke;
The less he spoke, the more he heard:
Why can't we all be like that bird?

This poem is in the public domain.

Or- 'the wise old owl was a wise old bird'.

My mother, & her brother, often recited this poem way back in the 40's. I never forgot it & am thrilled to see it in print!

Hardly dare to voice my profound agreement: to-wit - observe to-whoo - integrate understanding
