O is for Owl

O is for Owl

by Ronnie Hess  

In this small, even intimate collection, Ronnie Hess has written a series of love poems about—owls.  From “First Owl,” to the last poem in the book, “Married to an Owl,” Hess describes, sometimes humorously, her growing awareness of these birds, her infatuation with them, and the lessons she ultimately takes away from them. Whether it’s the smallest chouette, Europe’s little owl, or the tufted great horned owl, one of the most adaptable and familiar of the species in the Americas. Also featured in this collection are keenly observed sketches of other birds—red-tailed hawks and various songbirds—that can fly into our lives, if we but looked and listened.
