National Poetry Month: Verse Novel WIP Excerpt

Here is an excerpt from my current work in progress, a middle grade verse novel tentatively titled Little Bell Lost.

Night Owl

When I am in bed
late at night
the whole house
quiet
except for the soft
whispery
snores
of my sisters

I hear it
in the trees across the way

an owl

he sounds almost exactly
like the cartoons say
his voice a rapid
hoo-oo-oo-oo
hoo-oo-oo-oo-oo

carried from the trees
to me

the only one
awake.
