Owl’s Lullaby

Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo,
Startles me awake!
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo.

Night Whispers, Night Echoes,
Owl Haunts, Owl Lulls,
Dreamer into Night’s Trance,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo.

Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo,
Sing Me a Lullaby, Owl,
Dream Me a Dream,
Remind Me a Memory,
Of Childhood Long Past,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo.

Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo,
I hear Owl’s Call,
Then the Other’s Response,
I breathe and wait in unison,
Breath Syncs into Owl’s Refrain,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo.

Faint Your Cooing Stills,
Whisks To Far-Away Hills,
Mysteries and Rhymes,
Like Rock-A-Bye Chimes,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo.

Fading, Lagging, Distant the Cooing,
Wishing Wings Were Mine to Sprout,
Take Me, Lead Me, Show Me, Owl,
Usher Me into Night’s Quiet Keeping,
Fly Me on Winds and Wings,
Sail Me on Winds and Waves,
Sing Me in Harmony, Owl,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo.

Sweet Sleep, I’m Calling,
Rock Me, Lull Me,
Cradle Me Softly, I’m Falling,
Owl’s Chanting Night’s Song,
Dreams Calling, Trailing Along,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo.

Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo,
Owl’s Song, Off then On,
Night Echoes, Owl’s Haunt,
Owl’s Swoop, Owl’s Sweep,
Owl’s Mystery Dreams,
Itself, Myself, back to Sleep,
Good Night, Dear Girl,
Sleep Sweet.
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo,
Cuck-coo-whoo-whoo.
