Down in the Woods~by Patrick Kevin O’Shea


 

 

Down in the Woods

Image may contain: bird and outdoor

Down in the woods, by the old oak tree . Where the grass is long and the wind is free .

Beady eyes from above , lurking down to the ground . As a field mouse scurries past, searching for food to be found .

Silent beating wings, clad with feathers that are soft. A barn owl drops, from the sky, up aloft .

The field mouse hurries, to try and get away . As fierce pointed talons, try to clasp this frightened prey .

This little creatures heart beating frightened under ground . Safely away from silent wings without sound .

Down in the woods, by the old oak tree . The grass is long, Where the field mouse, escapes to be free….
