Guardian Owl

Company coming by night,
who are you? Whoo?
I live here.  I have a right
to know what’s new.
Have you come in fear, in flight?
Is the hang of your life askew?

Then welcome, come so far,
so much ado.
I guard the stable a star
is pointing to.
Enter, the door’s ajar,
to fit the fullest of you.

Go in, I’ll check you off.
You’re overdue.
Don’t push or pinch or shove
For a better view.
Just say your name with love
when I ask, Who are you?  Whoo?
