"Great Horned Owl" by Betsy Bowen

How vivid are the colors reflected in the moonlight! Out of this not-so-darkness, he gives a dominating glare. His yellow-disk eyes push me down with force. He seems perched rather high up, larger than life, giving a look that declares this forest his kingdom. I am merely an unwelcome trespasser, and while I probably should grovel for mercy, I'm too mesmerized by his vibrant regalia.
