Mrs Owl

When the children went to their beds at night,
Some silly mice came from their homes to fight.
     There was somebody else who came silently too.
     Then someone called out 'twit-twoo'.

There were two giant eyes shining in the dark,
And those two giant eyes soon found their mark.
     The two mice suddenly stopped their fighting
      When Mrs Owl swooped as fast as lightning.

I have a very special friend - a little Chinese girl from Shanghai - (You You to her family and to me, but her English name is Anne).  She tells me she wants to be an illustrator when she grows up and she's illustrated this poem so beautifully that I'm sure you'll all love it.  Josie
