The Dove and the Owl

It's getting to be that time of year Jesus birthday.I wrote this little poem last year I love it and wanted to share it with my friends...
The Dove and the Owl
A little white Dove perched on a branch cooing
A wise old Owl ask? Dove where are you going?
I'm not sure, the Dove answered, but I must follow that star
"May I rest in your tree, I've been flying so far"
"That bright star? ask the Owl, "I noticed it too"
"North I should think" as he gave out a hoot
"Yes", said the Dove, "that's what the cattle all say"
Just over in Bethlehem, even the donkey's did bray"
"May I come along?" The wise owl did hoot
"Oh yes " said the Dove, with a soft little coo
The Dove and the Owl flew off into the night
Onward to Bethlehem with the stars guiding light
"THERE!" cooed the Dove, "Do you see what I see?"
"Hoot Hoot" said the Owl as they sit high in a tree
The stable is full, there are cattle and sheep
The Wise Men and Sheppard's, and the new Baby sleeps
"Oh, I must bring a gift" The Dove looked all about
"Peace on earth has been born" Hoot, Hoot said the Owl
With a soft little coo the Dove took a chance
He flew down to the manger with a small olive branch
Mary just smiled and took the branch in her hand                                      Peace on earth has been born, Jesus,  God's great gift to man

Merry Christmas to all my friends and family God is good
