Medium Poems

The Wise Owl

The wise owl perched high up in a tree,
With round eyes that never seem to sleep,
In silence, it watches the creatures below,
As the night creeps in, and the winds blow.

Its feathers are soft to the touch,
And its hoot is melodic, not too much,
With a keen sense of hearing and sight,
The wise owl keeps resolute all night.

It’s a symbol of wisdom and grace;
A creature that’s free in any space,
The wise owl is a true marvel to behold,
A natural wonder, untamed and bold.

So, come and join its nocturnal realm,
Where nature’s secrets slowly un-helm,
Let yourself be guided by its wisdom’s light,
And soar freely into the darkest of night.

The Mysterious Owl

The mysterious owl, a creature of the night,
Flies silently, with hardly a sound, in sight,
Its feathers, like silk, gleam in the moon’s eerie light,
As it swoops and glides, out of our sight.

Its piercing eyes, so sharp and clear,
Can see through the darkness, with no fear,
It watches over the world, from up high,
Ensuring all creatures sleep snug and dry.

It’s a creature of legend, a mystery unsolved,
Of secrets and myths that are yet to unfold,
Its hoots and shrieks fill the night’s dense air,
Creating a mystical silence, hauntingly rare.

So, come and see the mysterious owl’s flight,
Its beauty that’s free, a magnificent sight,
Watch in awe, as it silently takes flight,
Into the unknown, never tiring, always bright.

Long Poems

The Night’s Guardian

In the dead of night, when daylight fades
And the moon casts its eerie shades
Amidst the quiet calm that pervades
The woods come alive, with the hoots of the wise

The owl, majestic in its flight
Silent as a shadow, with wings so light
It looks down upon a world in fright
And brings comfort, with its watchful might

The night’s guardian, a creature of the dark
Its keen eyes, like beacons, pierce the stark
Blackness that envelops the forest, stark
And all who venture in, feel the owl’s mark

A sentinel, perched up high
On a branch or a tree that touches the sky
The owl scans the land with an unblinking eye
A master of the night, it cannot be denied

In the owl’s presence, there is a sense of peace
A calmness that makes all fears cease
Under its watchful gaze, all troubles decrease
And the night feels like a friend, rather than a disease

So when you wander in the woods at night
And the darkness fills your soul with fright
Just remember, that up there, in the night
The owl is watching, with all its might.

The Wisdom of Owl

In the still of the night,
When all creatures are asleep,
A lone figure takes flight,
Silent, steady, and deep.

It’s the owl, wise and mighty,
With talons sharp and keen,
Its eyes, round and eerie,
Piercing through the darkest scene.

The owl, a symbol of wisdom,
A creature of the wise,
With feathers that shimmer,
And wings that stretch across the skies.

It watches and waits,
For prey in its sight,
Moving with grace,
In the dark of the night.

The owl, a master of stealth,
An expert in the hunt,
With instincts beyond measure,
And senses razor sharp and blunt.

Its hoots echo through the woods,
A call of might and awe,
A sound that fills the night,
And pierces through the core.

The owl, a creature of mystery,
Of secrets kept close and tight,
Of tales untold and history,
Older than the ancient light.

It glides through the treetops,
As the moonlight shines bright,
A sentinel of the forest,
A guardian of the night.

The owl, a creature of wonder,
Of magic and of myth,
With a presence that lingers,
Long after it takes its fifth.

It’s a symbol of hope and wisdom,
Of intuition and of stealth,
A creature of the darkness,
That lights up the world with its health.

The owl, a creature of beauty,
Of grace and of might,
A master of the night sky,
And a wonder of the light.

So let us learn from the owl,
And embrace its spirit true,
To live with wisdom and wonder,
And fly with grace, anew.
