By Susan Hendrix

Awake too early to our hard tasks
We heard
And went outside to see
Two great horned owls up on our roof
At three
Saying, “whooo, whooo” patiently
In the late dark
Each to the other

Answering each other’s questions
Reminding each other who they are
Being old owls together and beautiful.
