Children's Poems
by Margo Fallis
"Are you talking to me?"

"Are you talking to me?"

Huge yellow eyes glared as the robins flew by,

Soaring and sailing across the deep blue sky.

They saw him and landed on the branch next to him.

Hello, Owl. This is Jock and Im Jim.

Owl didnt answer but ignored them with a frown.

I said, hello, Owl, Jim said and made faces like a clown.

Hes not going to answer, Jock added, Hes not nice.

Ill say, Jim answered. His stares as cold as ice.

The robins taunted the owl and called him lots of names,

Like Grumpy and Sour Puss and even Jesse James.

Suddenly the owl moved and let out a great sigh.

The corner of his beak moved as did one of his eyes.

Are you talking to me? he asked and turned his head to the side.

The robins glanced at each other as the owls beak opened up wide.

Ill eat you for breakfast, he snarled. Ill eat you for lunch too.

The two robins gasped and in fear away they flew.

The owl was pleased because he could sit and sleep.

And so he did and never made a sound, not even a peep.
