When you go owling

You don't need words

Or warm

Or anything but hope.

That's what Pa says

The kind of hope

That flies on silent wings

Under a shining owl moon

--By Jane Yolen

There are a lot of legends and lore about the nocturnal owl and the moon. I like a popular story on You Tube entitled Owl Moon about a father taking his daughter out on a cold night calling for owls.

I have also made my own music video of hooting owls and their moon.
