The Gruff, Growling Goat and the Frowned Owl.

The goat was gruff,

a Billy Blue,

he said “growl, growl”

quite unamused.

“What’s the Kulla Kalloo?”

said the brown owl

who didn’t “Twit-Twoo”

and instead frowned.

The goat did say

to the frowned owl

that there was a reason

for the growl

and that growls reason

was in depth

with the seasons

that slowly crept.

The goat did say

to the frowned owl

“How now I say,

this frown is now

but in a while

there’ll be a wrinkle,

from your concern,

a permanent crinkle.

That is why

I’m gruff and growl,

because I am older

than you, wise owl.

With the seasons

as they go

my growl gets gruffer

and my legs do slow.”

The owl did frown

at this lost stray

who was feeling

older by the day.

Then the owl gave a wise smile

at finding a way

to make his friend smile

and make him feel

so young and new

and from then on gave him:

“Twit-Twoo”.
