Cinquain to a Wise (?) Owl


Wise Owl,
I’m mystified
About why you’re thought wise.
Is it your hunting skills, or just
Big eyes?

It seems
That when it comes
To communication,
Vocabulary isn’t your
Strong point.

“Who, Who”?
I mean — Get real —
Those words show ignorance.
Yet men believe wisdom resides
In you?

Ah well,
Still mystified,
I will concede I like
To hear you “sing” while others sleep —
At night.

Also posted for Daily Post Prompt: Leaf.  Since my owl is sitting in a tree with leaves, I figure this little bit of cinquain fits the prompt.
