An Owl in my head

An idea from the animals represented on the bicorns worn by felos at carnaval in Galicia.

‘There is an owl in my head’
said Joseph. ‘I am wise,
wisest of all creatures’.

‘There is a tiger in my head’
said Paul. ‘I am  fierce,
all creatures fear me’.

‘A stag in mine’
said Thomas. ‘ I am majestic,
admired by all’.

‘My head is empty’
said Jim. ‘a space
for all creatures to come and go.’
