An Owls Goodbye

There sits on a perch An Owl so proud In a forested area With it's Tallahassee crowd There will be a sad day Drawing so near Flapping his wings goodbye As his eyes gently tear His buddy and pal Is moving away To Ormond Beach To where she will stay Close to the ocean Of which she adores On the land of her father And the golden rich shores In the heat of the day On evenings so cool Swimming and sunbathing Beside her Atlantic pool On the sands she will stroll In the Florida sun This journey she's made A new era's begun All the time you were here As i flew in our sky You always looked out for me This is an Owls Goodbye http://www.thehighlanderspoems.com/carolyn.php

I am so amazed how your words come to life and seem to jump right off the page and bring so many emotions to the surface! As a wildlife photographer--I really love this poem--its meaning relates both to nature and to humans--and if you read between the lines...you will see and feel so much more than what is there. I like this one! Deb

James, this filled my eyes with tears. My owl will miss me when I leave, and I him. He has been a constant, loving companion. Parting is such sweet sorrow. Lots of Love, Carolyn

There is a soft, gentle sadness with this one....saying goodbye to a feathered friend! Nicely done! ~ Carrie
