Owls

(from the French of Charles Baudelaire)

Sheltered by the sombre yews
the owls are perched abreast in rows,
just like outlandish deities.
They dart their orange eyes, and muse.

Without a movement they remain
until that tristful time arrives
when fading sunset at last fails,
and all about them darkness reigns.

From ‘Nature’

    1. Thank you, Jacydo. I thought it was time for something short and different, and, not having looked at ‘Owls’ for a long while, was surprised by the picture!
