Day 826: Screech Owl


Another perfect gem of a poem from Ted Kooser.



Screech Owl - Ted Kooser

All night each reedy whinny
from a bird no bigger than a heart
flies out of a tall black pine
and, in a breath, is taken away
by the stars. Yet, with small hope
from the center of darkness
it calls out again and again.

  1. I like this poem but can you give me the meaning of it? I was given this poem in my 9th grade english class and have to write a response poem in relation to it.
