Far Far Away

The Explorer

the owl prepares for the midnight flight

his strong wings take him through the frigid air

until the appearance of morning light

his large glowing eyes are ever aware


eyes that can spy anything that’s below

in the midst of the trees he sees a house

through the window the firelight’s aglow

there’s a hole in the wall fit for a mouse


through the moonlit landscape the wind howls

on the forest floor there is a feather

inside a cave an animal growls

as he flies through the cold winter weather


every night and year after year he soars

he’s ever exploring the great outdoors
