The Owl

There is a story behind this song. I’ll leave it at that for now.

Moonlight shined through the trees in the woods

A barred owl called and I understood

Nocturnal presence flew silently by

I tried to relate then called back in kind


Over my shoulder then quickly was gone

It called from the tree top, said I’m not alone

It seemed to advise me on which way to go

There’s a lot more to life than I’ll ever know


I heard the owl calling, I tried to reply

The moonlight danced on the trees

All alone, I can’t explain why

The owl was calling to me


Perched on the branch the raptor looked wise

I felt right at home when it looked in my eyes

Stars seemed to shimmer comforting me

I shined like the forest of moonlit trees

I like the "leave it at that for now" intro! Let the listener fill in the background; you've sketched out the foreground quite nicely.

Some time back, you left me a note on a song, Kingston Recliner:Destiny . . . You know, your verse might make a nice bridge to really capture the essence of “Destiny”. I just saw it and am wondering what "Destiny" is.
