He flies by night, through darkened skies

In search of prey, as moon does rise

Talons, hidden, tucked underneath

Eyes opened wide, he searches heath

The slightest movement, he can detect

His victim, knows no circumspect

Caught in claws, then whisked away

It shall not see the light of day

For the owl must feed his family

Hidden high above, in yonder tree

He’ll do this task, without fear

Each time the sunlight disappears
