Kathleen Lynch: How to Build an Owl

1.   Decide you must.

2.   Develop deep respect
      for feather, bone, claw.

3.   Place your trembling thumb
      where the heart will be:
      for one hundred hours watch
      so you will know
      where to put the first feather.

4.   Stay awake forever.
      When the bird takes shape
      gently pry open its beak
      and whisper into it: mouse.

5.   Let it go.
